The global forum for collectible design, Design Miami/ has announced the dates and location for its first Paris edition. As the sister fair to Art Basel, the inaugural Design Miami/ Paris fair will coincide with Paris+ par Art Basel over 17-22 October, 2023, joining the flagship fairs in Basel, Switzerland, and Miami Beach, Florida. Marking its debut in the Paris design scene, Design Miami/ will present its first Paris edition at L’hôtel de Maisons, situated in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a cultural hub that is home to many of the world’s leading collectible design galleries. The 18th century mansion stands as an iconic landmark deeply rooted in Parisian history – previously home to Karl Lagerfeld and several generations of the Pozzo di Borgo family.

We are thrilled to announce this significant milestone in Design Miami’s evolution with our new home in Paris. We look forward to expanding our invaluable and growing community in a landmark design city that stands at the epicenter of our core beliefs.
