Design Miami has announced their participating exhibitors for 2015, which include first-time additions to the fair from São Paulo, Rome, London, New York, Brussels, and Beijing. The 11th edition of the art and design fair will take place from December 2–6, and with 35 exhibitors, remains the same size as last year’s edition. (See the release of the Art Basel in Miami Beach exhibitor list.)

For the first time, the fair has commissioned a student group from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design to create a unique entryway for the site. In previous years, the fair has tapped an early career architect or designer to craft an outdoor installation for the space, but this year, they opted for an even younger set. Following a school-wide competition in which over 100 students from 32 teams participated, a judging panel comprising both Harvard faculty and representatives of Design Miami selected the best concept.

The winning design is “UNBUILT” by Joanne Cheung, Jenny Shen, Steven Meyer, Doug Harsevoort, and Yiliu Shen-Burke, a canopy crafted from 200 pink foam architectural models sprouting from tall metal structures.

“It is a privilege to partner with Harvard GSD, one of the most amazing sources of creative thinking in the world of design,” said Design Miami founder Craig Robins in a press release. “We are excited to see the students’ vision realized at Design Miami—a platform that has always been committed to presenting the work of emerging talent alongside material by established and historic designers.”

The Design Curio section—one of the highlights of last year’s fair—will return once again with another set of immersive installations showcasing everything from emerging design technology to contemporary conceptual design.
