Study Tour: Design Miami 2008

Cooper-Hewitt Design Watch Members travelled to Miami—the hottest design destination. Now in its fourth year, Design Miami is the global forum for collecting, exhibiting, and discussing limited edition design. Cooper-Hewitt’s group visited the world’s leading design galleries in the Design Miami/ Temporary Structure, designed by award winning young architectural practice Aranda/Lasch. This year’s Designer of the Year Award is presented to Fernando & Humberto Campana. The Campana Brothers also recently presented Campana Brothers Select: Works from the Permanent Collection (February 15–August 24, 2008) at Cooper-Hewitt.
