Friedman Benda was one of the galleries that exhibited at Design Miami 2016.

The most talked-about piece at the preview yesterday was Scrappy Cabinet, a sideboard fashioned from trash by young New York designer Misha Kahn, presented by Friedman Benda gallery. This year edition also counted on several statement pieces.

Calm modernism is out and anarchic forms are in at this year’s Design Miamicollectors’ fair, as designers respond to tumultuous political times.

The fair, which for the last few years has been dominated by mid-century French and vintage furniture, is this time stuffed with more experimental pieces.

“Times are crazy,” said Juan Garcia Mosqueda of New York gallery Chamber. “No-one wants to play it safe any more.”

“Because of the political climate, people just decided to go all in,” said Garcia Mosqueda. “That means more attitude in design, more expressionism in design, pushing for ideas that are beyond functionalism. It means less of this idea of utopian modernism.”
