Galerie VIVID
Design Miami/ 2012

Founded by Saskia Copper and Aad Krol in 1999, Galerie VIVID was among the first to show contemporary design in the context of both design and art. For Design Miami/ 2012, Galerie VIVID is proud to present new contemporary designs alongside several iconic pieces by Gerrit Rietveld, the great Dutch furniture designer and architect. A highlight of the exhibition will be an unused Rietveld Red Blue chair, executed by Gerard A. van Groenekan. This chair was ordered by an American architect in 1965 but never made it to America and was put in storage. Fifty years later, the chair along with the original shipping crate will be on display. Galerie VIVID will also debut an edition of four Bent Wood Tables by British designer Richard Woods and Sebastian Wrong. The colorful hand-painted low tables form together an installation that crosses boundaries between design and art.
