Every year, I note one newly-introduced designer at Design Miami, who has made an impact, for design that is fresh, smart, innovative, and with a great potential to grow in the international marketplace. For Design Miami/ 2014, I would like to not the work of Italian architect Vincenzo De Cotis, who is represented by Beirut-based Carwan Gallery with his collection entitled Déchaînements. Consisted of limited edition tables, lighting, and rugs, the pieces are all inspired by the architect's trip to Lebanon. I found the combination of materials, hand-blown by Venini, hand-made brass partitions, and aged fiberglass particularly intriguing, while the wealth of forms, ranged from geometrical, constructivist furniture to exquisite organic lightings which look as if they gown from the ceiling like plants are intriguing and pleasing at the same time.
