Miu Miu M/Marbles GIANT Stool
December 3rd - 8th, 10AM - 7PM
Miu Miu is heading to Miami to launch the next in a series of design collaborations with M/M (Paris), which will be the MIU M/MARBLES STOOL. The original stool, M/Matching Colorstool, launched during Salone del Mobile di Milan earlier this year. The second iteration, M/MARBLES STOOL is an elevation of the first version that features the combination of palm wood, crepe rubber and finally, hand blown Murano glass pegs. During design week, a dedicated installation will be conceived right here in our Gardens as well as the Miami Design District Post Office, in which an oversized version of the MIU MIU M/MARBLES STOOL defines the space. The installation demonstrates how this universal form can be adapted to any scale, transcending from the domestic realm to the habitable, becoming a symbol in its own right. The colorful walls have been chosen to reflect the iridescent nature of glass bringing a lightness to the space. The stool themselves will then be available for purchase in the Miu Miu Design District boutique, as well as on MiuMiu.com.

Bird Watching with To Be Determined + Other Art “Easter Eggs”
The birds are moving in! We're getting colorful for Basel with an acrylic birdhouse installation by Konner Scroggins, aka, To Be Determined, TBD taking over our trees. The intention of these birdhouses is to add color to any landscape or interior. Light that travels through the birdhouses will carry the color with it. Light will also reflect off of the birdhouses casting colors throughout. TBD is a multidisciplinary studio based in Miami, FL with a current focus on acrylic offering design/build services, creative consulting, design services, and has their own product line. TBD is interested in sculpting the living environment and promoting positivity. TBD can be found online at TBDinprocess.comOpens in New Window as well as their IG page @t oye bd.inprocess.
