Art Basel Miami Beach - Preview. From December 6-10, Christie’s and Miami-based design retailer Luminaire, will present the Puppy Love project, a charity auction of plastic puppies for the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Thirty five of the world's biggest architects, designers, sculptors, painters, and product designers were challenged to take a bare plastic puppy and transform it into something new. The purpose, according to event organizers is "To fuse the whimsical world of art, design and fashion to present a unique perspective on humanity, which exists to provoke ideas, fantasies and most importantly, to contribute to a important charitable cause." . Shown above, Flower Puppy by Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt. Chapeaux to Luminaire’s Nasir and Nargis Kassamali for thinking about the Puppy Love project for such a worthy cause. Bidding will start at $5.000.
