The cultural scene in South Florida is continuing to evolve and Miami is proving to be the hub for international art and design events that travel to America. This May, MAISON&OBJET AMERICAS, the design and lifestyle show that travels the world to bring together designers, architects, property developers, and other cultural influencers, returns to our city and the Miami District is the spot to experience one-of-a-kind installations, exhibitions and soirees. We’ve highlighted a few of the exhibits happening in the neighborhood.  The full program guide is available here.

Every spring, the foremost leaders in the watch and jewelry industries descend on Basel, Switzerland for the world’s leading watch and jewelry fair better known as Baselworld.

Ahead, we preview our favorite timepieces and provide a glimpse of the styles likely to make their way soon to the Miami Design District.

When TRANSPOSITION: Over Many Miles premiered in the Miami Design District in December 2014, not even the artist Paula Crown could have imagined the iterations and collaborations that this installation would inspire.  Over the past year Crown has been reinventing the piece on the corner of NE 1st Avenue at 39th Street each season and exploring new ways of interacting with visitors and the community.
