Design Miami/ 4-8 Decembre - Miami Beach, USA - 
Design Miami/ is the global forum for design. Each fair brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Occurring alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami, USA each December and Basel, Switzerland each June, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating collectible design.  

Design Miami/ is more than a marketplace for design, where the world’s top galleries gather to present museum-quality exhibitions of 20th and 21st century furniture, lighting and objets d’art. Each show balances exclusive commercial opportunities with progressive cultural programming, creating exciting collaborations with designers and design institutions, panels and lectures with luminaries from the worlds of design, architecture, art and fashion, and unique commissions from the world’s top emerging and established designers and architects.  
Here Comes The Sun! Galerie BSL - Béatrice Saint-Laurent - Paris Selected works by: 
Djim Berger - Nacho Carbonell - Taher Chemirik - Charlotte Cornaton - Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance - Ayala Serfaty - Faye Toogood.
Here Comes The Sun! is the theme chosen by Galerie BSL for Design Miami / 2013. A booth which mirrors a Miami beach, with a cabana, a 1960s white American lounge chair as comfortable as a hammock, a throne chair and a 83-inch high floor lamp in a minimalist spirit inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement made by rising star of British design Faye Toogood.
In sunny yellow, blue and pink tones, intangible luminous sculptures reminiscent of refined biomorphic forms by Israeli designer Ayala Serfaty are presented, whose work is included in the Metropolitan and the New York Museum of Arts and Design collections. A sunny yet intriguing atmosphere includes: a giant lamp resembling a sea anemone and zoomorphic spider clocks in bronze and agate stones by Nacho Carbonell, Designer of the Future at Design Miami / Basel in 2009; a bench and colorful stools including models for children resembling coral or sponge, where porcelain is sensually renewed by Dutch alchemist Djim Berger; ceramic and glass vases and sculptures which look like natural crystals, by twentysix year-old French visual artist Charlotte Cornaton; wall lighting and kinetic pieces imitating the sun when it creeps through tree foliage, by Noé Duchaufour- Lawrance; new “Interior Treasures” pieces by famous jewelry designer Taher Chemirik, such as a brass petal paravent with turquoise, bright pink and bright green rare hard stones; a low table including a very unique giant rock crystal seventyone inches long; and floor lamps in brass and rare hard stones like carnivorous plants.
Most works are unique, while some are in very limited edition. Commissioned for Design Miami /, they explore the shifting boundaries between art and design, sculpture and function, tradition and innovation, each seeking a new approach to the object.
