Nektar de Stagni Opens NDS Market for Art Basel
Oh, Miami. We've been adulterous with our thoughts. We've been secretly pining for other cities, romanticizing their street markets. When the lights go off, we dream of going in and out of the aisles of London's Spitalfields Market and running our fingers over smooth ceramic jewelry at Brooklyn Flea. A girl has needs, you know?
Promises have been made, though, and we agree to stick around and try to make things work. There's been talk of a open-air market in the Design District by the New York folks at Launch Arte, and now designer Nektar de Stagni is getting in on the market game. Starting December 2, she will open NDS Market in her retail space, which recently housed the So Raw pop-up shop.
A sort of open-air market contained under one roof, the NDS Market will
showcase up-and-coming Miami designers, artists, music, and
publications. Here's who is on the roster so far:
The Opulent Project
Nektar De Stagni
Jay Hines (Augurari)
P. Scott Cunningham (University of Wynwood)
Tom Healy (Four Way Books)
MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami)
We can't wait to fondle the pages of UW's inaugural Jali-Alai Magazine, Flux Forces's newest pressing, and a print by FreeGums. NDS will
open everyday during Art Basel from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and the market will
continue throughout the season. The NDS Shop is located at 155 NE
38th St. #102. in the Design District. Call 786-556-3033 or visit
