Design Miami/ joins forces with Friedman Benda, R & Company, and OpenSea to launch its first NFT collection
The future is now! Today Design Miami/ is launching its debut NFT collection, featuring original works from some of today’s hottest designers. From R & Company, you’ll find NFTs from Sebastian Erazuriz, Alex Proba, Job Smeets, and Katie Stout. And from Friedman Benda, you’ll find a series from Misha Kahn. For a limited time only—until December 5th—the auction is hosted by OpenSea, the world's first and largest peer-to-peer marketplace for crypto collectibles and NFTs.
“We are excited to be collaborating with OpenSea and Design Miami to offer NFTs by amazing designers who are also presenting physical objects at the fair,” said Zesty Meyers, Principal at R & Company. “For designers, NFTs offer opportunities to imagine and create without limitation. We know that collectible design is needed in the NFT space and the growing realm of virtual environments in which so many people are getting engaged.”
From Katie Stout’s fanciful, floating cuckoo clock to Misha Kahn’s flying unique objects randomly spawned at his virtual “FACTORY 001,” the Design Miami/ NFT collection demonstrates that the next chapter in the collectible design field has already begun.
