Design Miami/ 2023 has come to an end. This year's theme, "Where We Stand," celebrated design influenced by place, identity, and heritage. According to Design Miami/ Curatorial Director Anna Carnick: 'The theme is an invitation to consider design objects as anthropological markers that reveal an array of stories about the time and place in which they were made.'
