The global fair for collectible design, Design Miami/ announced last June their first edition in Paris. As the sister fair to Art Basel, the inaugural Design Miami/ Paris will coincide with Paris+ by Art Basel from 18 to 22 October 2023, joining the flagship fairs in Basel, Switzerland, and Miami Beach, Florida. Marking its debut in the Paris design scene, Design Miami/ will forecast the best of contemporary art and design at L’Hôtel de Maisons, located in Saint-Germain-des-Près, a strategic cultural hub that is to many of the world’s leading collectible design galleries. The 18th-century mansion welcoming the fair stands as an iconic landmark deeply rooted in Parisian history, previously home to Karl Lagerfeld and several generations of the Pozzo di Borgo family.
