Miami Art Week 2021 advocated for more inclusion and a better understanding of nature
Another through-line at this year’s event was botany. The use of flowers and other plant matter was evident in the Josef Frank-inspired Flora Contemporaria cabinet of Polish designer Marcin Rusak—presented by New York’s Twenty First Gallery—and Brooklyn-based Pelle. Arguably best in show at the fair, the lighting design studio’s Infinite Lure installation brought together both sides of its architecturally-inspired and craft-led practice. The Curio booth was fashioned as a “hall of mirrors” to reveal the latest iterations of the cotton linter hand-casted Lure collection but also to debut its brand new aluminum Be Patient series. The kinetic showcase balanced monumental and architectonic lines with soft, organic articulations.
