From 5 feet long fish that fair goers float in the air, machine guns made of typewriters,an oh so chic champagne spout from Moet,  to stunning paintings, jewelry and furniture —– the WOWs I found, Art Basel Miami  2017. Here’s a photo gallery of the creative, clever, fun, or beautiful (or all four) from various art fairs, the Design District, and Design Miami.

Shanghai import Spin, recently opened in the Design District. Contemporary yet classic vessels and tableware, are elegant in their quiet simplicity. I bought one of their pieces on my last trip there and had hoped to buy more, but couldn’t ship them home.

Leave it up to Moet et Chandon to invent a chic and practical spout to drink your individual bottle of their bubbly.

Ugo Rondinone, art basel miami images, bass museum, MiamiCurated

The new Bass museum is a jewel. The new design is much more user and art friendly, and this exhibit by Ugo Rondinone is a standout. Called “Vocabulary of Solitude, it’s 24 clowns representing various states of being, senses, everyday activities. Notice the feet and the hands of the clowns. Illusion or reality? A friend thought the oversize lightbulb in the room might turn on and the clowns would come to life!
