1. Virgil Abloh 

Architect, creative director, and designer with a degree in civil engineering, Virgil Abloh has all kinds of jobs. Over the last few years, he has been collaborating with artists of the likes of Kanye West, Nick Knight and Takashi Murakami. His personal highlight at the Design Miami 2017 is none other but Chicago-based architects Krueck + Sexton’s latest lounge chair built in polished stainless steel and leather (cover photo). The creative duo has been dealing with residential and design private commissions since the Seventies, and is here represented by Volume Gallery

2. Erica Choi

According to Erica Choi (@eggcanvas), New York-based digital art director, designer and founder of visual magazine Egg Canvas, Eric Roinestad’s ceramic lamp HL05B for The Future Project is definitely stealing the stage this year. She explains that “such artfully handmade lamp is 100% beautiful, for its aesthetics combines the artist’s house looks in South California with his Scandinavian upbringing.”. Choi also winked at the Sofa Composition by Albert Frey and at the round table featured in the Ocean Memories collection – a work by Mathieu Lehanneur for Carpenters Workshop Gallery.

3. Pari Eshan

After snatching a degree in Architecture, Pari Eshan (@paridust) is now best known for being the founder of the much buzzed-about blog Pari Dust. She first started pairing designer looks with museum masterpieces, and nowadays boasts more than 200,000 followers on Instagram with her blog providing an open window into contemporary art, fashion, and the built environment. In Miami, her heart went straight out to MR10, the dining chair designed by Mies van der Rohe between 1923 and 1931. To quote her words, “this chair is an actual icon of Modernist design, whose sophisticated allure results from the mix of the ultra-modern chrome finish and the natural woven-cane seat and backrest”.

4. Jenny Lopez

Fashion model, producer, influencer, fashionista, blogger, mother of a three-year-old child and a Golden retriever – so Jenny Lopez (her homonymy with best-known Jennifer is not accidental) describes herself. Her personal motto is “live, love and be fearless”, and her current obsession is aquamarine: that’s why she picked the Femten Chair by Ian Stell, made of aircraft plywood, digitally printed ABS plastic and nylon parachute cord. Take a look at Jenny’s Instagram account!

5. David Fisher

David Fisher (@highsnobietydesign) runs a particularly snob blog which has been appropriately christened “Highsnobiety” since 2015. Still a student at the Zurich University back then, nowadays he is an actual style reference for young, connected and sophisticated men keen on fashion. His Design Miami 2017’s chart is topped by Charlotte Perriand’s Cowhide Armchair. “Being a great fan of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, I am also naturally drawn to the work of Perriand. This chair is a blend of unique design, fine rawhide and high functionality.”

6. Jeanne Grey

Founder of blog GreyLayers, Jeanne Grey went for The Edge of What We Know, a site-specific installation by Lindsay Edelman (cover photo). “I am excited by the fact that you can spend a whole day trying to get why and how the pieces are assembled”. Her blog has progressively made her a legend in the fashion world (she is both designer and model), without disdaining the field of digital & social communication. Her Instagram account (@thegreylayers) is an ode to immaculate taste and sensuality.
