For Design Miami/ 2019, Lexus returns as the official automotive partner. New for 2019, Lexus will bring the LC Convertible Concept as part of the brand’s first commissioned installation for #DesignMiami with an exhibition titled SUNSHOWER. The installation responds to the fair’s theme of “Elements: Water” and Lexus commissioned designer Nao Tamura to create an immersive, multimedia installation that evokes the wondrousness of this natural, outdoor phenomenon. SUNSHOWER has been curated by Design Miami/’s Curatorial Director Aric Chen and Milan-based curator and author Maria Cristina Didero.
Lexus will also be serving Ooho (Notpla), an edible water droplet, designed to replace disposable water bottles, offering a solution for a sustainable future. Design Miami/ guests will be able to sample the sustainable water solution at the Lexus booth at various time throughout the week. With this special partnership, Lexus deepened its mission to create a better world through design at this global forum that brings together the most influential collectors, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture. #DesignMiami @DesignMiami
