Design Miami/ Basel Returns in September with International Gallery Lineup


"Design Miami/ Basel returns to the Basel Messeplatz for the fifteenth edition of the fair from 21-26 September 2021, with 27 international gallery presentations and 14 Curio exhibitions... At Geoffrey Diner Gallery, the impressive Reception House table and chairs by George Nakashima will take centreplace in the booth. Built in 1981 for a close friend of Nakashima, the table is one of the earliest of the Sanso forms, a design later adapted by George Nakashima for his even larger Altars for Peace. These Altars were meant to be placed on every continent, tables around which George envisioned people from all over the world coming together "for prayer, meditation and contemplation.” Returning Thomsen Gallery will again present a collection of historic Japanese bamboo baskets made by some of the greatest bamboo artists of the modern era. These delicate pieces will be complemented by Japanese ceramic jars from the 15th-17th centuries; Japanese gold lacquer boxes from the 20th-21st century; and Japanese folding screens."
