Design Miami/ has announced Pedro Reyes and Carla Fernández as the recipients of the 2018 Design Miami/ Visionary Award. The annual award is given to creative talents across all fields that are engaging with design including designers, curators, architects, and luminaries who have made significant contributions to the field of design that offer a tangible and lasting impact on the world around us.
"Pedro and Carla's work has always brilliantly synthesized a spectrum of influences -- from Brutalism to Mexican indigenous culture to social progressive values - into a remarkable body of work," commented Craig Robins, Founder, Design Miami/. "I'm pleased we'll be celebrating their accomplishments at Design Miami/, and look forward to seeing their exhibition at the fair."
Reyes and Fernández will present a collaborative exhibition at Design Miami/ 2018 as well as design the graphic identity for the fair. The duo will present a retrospective of works that address some of the fundamental concerns of our time and facilitate intimate human exchanges that have become rare in this digital age. The booth's overall structure is designed by the award winners and will feature curved steel walls.
