Best Gallery Presentation/ CONVERSO

As part of this edition’s inaugural presentation of the juried Best of Show Awards, dealer of twentieth-century furniture CONVERSO, of Chicago, received the Best Gallery Presentation designation and sold a number of works from its solo show of the late Italian architect Osvaldo Borsani.

Recipient of the Best Contemporary Work award was a series of sculptural chairs made of objects hand-wrapped in leather by Jay Sae Jung Oh at Salon 94 Design. All three chairs sold. The winner of Best Historic Work was Galerie VIVID for its rare yellow varnished Beugel chair (1927) by Gerrit Rietveld, and Brazil-based ESPASSO gallery exhibited the award-winning Curio presentation Fine Tuning by Claudia Moreira Salles, a series of lamps that combine exotic reclaimed woods with niobium, a rare metal used in technology products.

Vetting committee member and lead award jurist, architect and collector Lee Mindel, said this year’s gallery edition “continues to raise the bar of exhibitor content that is brought to Design Miami/ and to place it in a historical context.”

Robert Aibel, of Philadelphia-based Moderne Gallery, said of the collecting activity this edition, “Our eighth year at Design Miami/ was among the most rewarding, in terms of the very positive, even exciting response to almost everything we exhibited. We had hundreds of serious conversations with clients from a dozen or more countries. The attendance and energy on the show floor was clearly at an all-time high with especially serious interest in historic and vintage works.”
