  • Robert Aibel is one of the world's leading authorities on George Nakashima, both as a collector as well as a dealer since 1984.  I was most impressed by his exhibit at the Design Miami - Basel show at the beginning of this month.  While we were "talking" I thought how great would it be if we could showcase his great knowledge of the work of this Icon of American Design.

  • A LOUNGE YOU SAY???  The Flamingo Collectors Lounge at Design / Miami was created by Tabanlioglu Architects.   It captures the essential pink feel of Miami Beach and translates it into a beautiful rationalistic design, converting this  5-meter x 20-meter space into a magical place to escape the hustle and bustle and color overload of the show.

  • ART DECO RULES!  Very seldom do I find folks that are as passionate about Art Deco in particular and Design in general as I did last November 14th at the Art Deco Museum at the Miami Design Preservation League presentation of Judith Miller's new book!  The group of about 100 attendees defying a rainy day was enthusiastic and asked very pointed and well thought out questions.
