What blew you away? Street ar t
was every where – inside a nd outside
galleries. Ju st how impor tan t the
move men t is, on ly time w ill tell.
A must-have from the eve nt? The
Sound Suit sculptures of a rtist Nick
Cave (n ot the si nger) have always
made me squi rm in a won derfully

The Miami Kartell store is famous for chronicling style through the ages in
tightly cura ted shows (Joe Columbo’s Dolcevita was a rece nt exhibition of the
decora tive culinar y ar t s). The store specialises in clas sic plastic, such as the
Componibili storage units (above) designed by Anna Castelli (who married into
the Kartell family). The units have been produced for more than 30 years and
are also on display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Visit kartell.it.
The newest style of architectu re to
be preser ved from the wrecking ball
is Miami Modern (MiMo for short).
It inco rpo rates a strip of Biscayn e
Boulevard bet ween NE 50th Street
and NE 77th Street. When modernism
made its way to this coastal en clave
in the 1940s-1960s, it couldn’t help
but be buffeted by the ma ny cultural
an d stylistic forces. B uildings like the
Saturn a nd Shalima r motels exhibit
an ato mic-age dou rness spiced up
with pop deco ratio n that is set to
at tract the new wave of design
devotees. Visit mimobo uleva rd.org .
