Design Miami Celebrated Ten Years With Emmett Moore, Coral Morphologic
At last night’s Vernissage, Design Miami celebrated 10 years of forward-thinking design in furniture, jewelry, and more. But many Miamians who came out to sip champagne and browse the booths were more interested in celebrating the local institutions who’d gained access to the tent for the first time.
Gallery Diet, owned by Nina Johnson-Milewski, featured the work of local designer Emmett Moore, who took full advantage of the opportunity to inject a little South Florida flavor into the historically European-tinged event. Across the Diet booth’s flamingo pink floor sat designs including chairs made from the flowery concrete dividers you see on homes across Miami; and a folding shade embellished with racy postcard images of women straight out of an Uncle Luke fantasy.
“[The work] is all universal, individually,” explained Moore at the event, “but taken together, I wanted it to give that [local] feel.”
