Each year Design Miami/ commissions the Designer of the Year a new work as part of the award.
As winner of the 2010 prize my project is NETSCAPE, an installation of 24 swing seats made of polypropylene netting and fibre glass. The seats are suspended from a purpose built metal structure in the entrance area of the temporary exhibition tent structure (designed by Moorhead & Moorhead architects, New York). More than a seating element, NETSCAPE is designed to act as a catalyst for social interaction enjoying warm Miami sunshine during days of exhausting trade fair rountine.
