More than 400 design aficionados and major collectors from around the globe attended the gala RALPH PUCCI (Miami) opening party co-hosted by PALMER during Design Miami Art Basel.
The new 10,000 sq ft gallery is located in a 1960s warehouse, continuing the industrial precedent set at RALPH PUCCI headquarters in New York, as well as its Los Angeles gallery, and features a striking mural on the building’s exterior called Strange Vegetation by Élizabeth Garouste.
The vast exhibition space showcases such globally renowned artists and designers as Hervé Van der Straeten, Patrick Naggar, India Mahdavi, John Wigmore, Christopher Makos, Photographer Marjorie Salvaterra and Elizabeth Garouste.
Following the recent renovation of their New York headquarters, RALPH PUCCI also expanded its footprint internationally in 2022 with a pop up in London’s Albemarle Street— its first European outpost—cementing its status as one of the best-regarded design galleries in the world.
Those in attendance at the Gallery Opening included: Anna & Ralph Pucci, Nicole Pucci, Michael & Drew Pucci, Will Reeve, Amanda Dubin, Richard Meier, Tony Ingrao, Élizabeth Garouste, Alfie Fernandez, Lee Mindel, Victoria Hagan & Michael Berman, PALMER Editorial Director Stefano Tonchi, Michael Gross, Mateo Tomičić, Elise Held, Nicole Hollis, Christopher Makos, Nicole Fuller, Heather McKenna-Pardo, Haeshin & James Lee, DJ Harber, and Maddie Bergeron.
At a dinner following the opening at Miami hotspot, Doma, Ralph Pucci, speaking before a small group of family and friends, commented: “Miami is an exciting, vibrant city where many cultures and creatives come together. The local community and visitors appreciate quality design and we have enjoyed a decade of success there already in our previous gallery. We are excited to have more space to show the diverse works of our artists and designers.”
