As per usual, the 2016 Design Miami (November 29 to December 4) proved to the year’s most important design event, with 37 international galleries participating in South Beach and various installations in the Design and Faena districts. Damian Hirst has placed a lifesize mammoth skeleton covered in gold leaf in a glass box on in the Faena Hotel gardens, overlooking the beachfront. The ever-present, noteworthy designers were present, including Ron Arad with his first seating collection for the Amman Gallery, along with Dale Chihuly’s astonishing glass collection and Turin’s Nucleo group’s mirror. Amman also hosted Maarten Baas, who created a copper leaf-covered sideboard, and France’s Mathieu Lehanneur, who created a lamp resembling cotton candy.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
