So Raw at NDS
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:

Nektar de Stagni


Emiko Oye


The Opulent Project

P. Scott Cunningham (University of Wynwood)

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
