and Swarovski to unveil exhibitions at Fendi Design Miami
Nov 30, 2014
German car company Audi will be displaying its quattro four-wheel-drive technology via a monolithic installation inspired by the idea of traditional Zen gardening. The piece features a concentric force unfolding from its center and carving its way into an abstract landscape. This year, the company will also present the first show car that bears the signature of the new Head of Design Marc Lichte.
Meanwhile, Austrian crystal house Swarovski has commissioned architect and MacArthur fellow Jeanne Gang to create an immersive installation in collaboration with filmmaker and nature photographer James Balog. "Thinning Ice" explores
the issue of the melting polar ice caps, in keeping with the brand's initiatives aimed at water conservation and preservation. The piece features ‘frozen' crystals and creates
the illusion of melting ice. A glacier-like table in the center of the space will
be punctured with voids descending into the surface's depths, evoking the meltwater thaw holes and crystalline patterns of thinning ice.
Italian fashion house Fendi has teamed up with design duo Dimore Studio to create an interpretation of an ideal, contemporary Fendi apartment in Rome. The space will showcase a selection of bespoke pieces partly conceived in homage to the origami work of Akira Yoshizawa and the steel tubing designs of Ferdinando Innocenti.
Design Miami runs December 3-7.
