The Miami Design District is the home to the top design companies in the world and is reputed as the premier cultural hub. During the tradeshow (May 12-15, 2015) series of special events and programmes will be curated by the design showrooms in the newly constructed Paseo Ponti, a pedestrian walk-way located in the heart of the Miami Design District. Some of the planned events look very promising to us!
DE LA CRUZ COLLECTION
23 NE 41st Street
The de la Cruz Collection in collaboration with the Miami Design District present FLOWER BLOCK, a collection of outdoor seating designed by Miami native Emmett Moore. Each seating element utilizes local concrete construction blocks as the primary material. The seating elements, presented in a variety of Caribbean colors represent the local architectural vernacular while drawing relationships between architectural proportions and the human body. This continues an ongoing body of work that debuted at Design Miami 2014.
