Design Miami Opening Night

Switching gears from the South Beach scene of Wednesday night, we found ourselves last night in the inland Design District, where familiar faces and serious fun made us feel right at home.

After a stop at the OLPC party, we witnessed the VIP rope drop at the Design Miami preview, where a swell of eager design groupies swarmed into the Moore Building. With that scene a little too, um, eager, for our tastes, we had more fun getting lost in the blocks nearby…


The driving forces behind Design Miami: the unbelievably gorgeous Amber Medda, and the equally dapper Craig Robins.


That handsome man facing the camera is Murray Moss, standing in his satellite store.


This place totally blew! The Campana Brothers, Constantin Boym and Paul Haigh all blowing glass live throughout the night.


The soothing Light Showers by Yoshiko Sato and Michael Morris (that’s Tania Ketenjian soaking up the experience; she’s doing a piece on the “As Long as it Lasts…” tattoo parlor for “Studio 360″).
