Design at Large 2018
Design Miami/ Basel’s Design at Large presents large-scale works of historical and contemporary design, showcasing ambitious architectural installations that feature both conceptual and industrial innovation. Design at Large is intended to be a site of discovery for visitors to the fair, presenting a selection of works that explore a particular theme inspired by current topics in design. This edition’s ambitious installation is envisioned by photographer François Halard, known for his distinctive images of interior spaces and architecture. Halard has portrayed the houses, gardens, and ateliers of singular personalities around the world, including Louise Bourgeois, Luigi Ghirri, Saul Leiter, Robert Rauschenberg, and Cy Twombly, as well as such architectural masterpieces as Casa Malaparte, Capri; Villa Noailles, Hyères, France; and La Maison de Verre, Paris. Time is Halard’s most frequent collaborator––his patience is one of the key elements of his visionary work. Design at Large is intended to be a site of discovery for visitors, presenting a selection of works that explore a particular theme inspired by current topics in design.
