SOFITEL GASTRONOMY
Creating delicious desserts is a labor of love for our Pastry Chefs at Sofitel. Many are award-winning and considered experts in their field. As a member of the Sofitel Miami recently remarked, “What we create is next to perfection. So if your dining companions don’t want to share dessert, i’ll take the blame.”

AIRPORT ART

Miami has a reputation for being a colorful, vibrant city — and its travel hub is no different. Miami International Airport (minutes from Sofitel) is part of the city’s Art in Public Places program, which focuses on taking local artists’ work out of museums or galleries and placing installations and exhibitions where more residents and visitors can view them. Travelers with layovers at Miami International Airport should take some time to peruse and admire the unique pieces in the airport’s South, Central and North Terminals. A few eye-popping displays include detailed murals, travel-themed light panels, and walkways and walls that incorporate seashells, coral and other marine wildlife seen around town.

We continue our look back at Art Basel in Miami with a little touch of Europe - of sorts. Mr. Brainwash, a Banksy protégé, is back in action in Miami with traditional yet out-of-the-box usage of familiar pop culture images and bright colors. This art installation is one of our favorites….

Now that Art Basel Miami has wrapped we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite pieces. One of our favorite collaborations was between the incredibly popular and chic Parisian retailer Colette and cool Miami boutique Alchemist, who produced an ’art drive-thru’ for the festival. A ‘Damien Hirst’ with a side of ‘Takashi Murakami’ anyone?

ART BASEL FAVORITE #5
Now that Art Basel is over, we’re highlighting some of our favorites from Miami through this week. To begin, what could be more chic than a Swarovski crystal-covered Heartschallenger ice cream truck?  Artists covered the truck bumpers to hubcaps with around half a million sparkling crystals from Swarovski, finished off with a pink hearts and a unicorn logo on the hood. An über-cute, Japanese-influenced aesthetic, and one of our Art basel highlights!

LIVING LOUIS VUITTON
For Design Miami this year, French compatriot Louis Vuitton will bring the design sensibility of Le Corbusier to life! The compact ‘home’ they have created is known as ‘La Maison au bord de l’eau’ (“the house on the water”), and was designed by his protégée many decades ago, Charlotte Perriand, one of the few female architects of her day and a pivotal force in defining modern design. Meticulously crafted in a workshop outside Milan, La Maison au bord de l’eau was created in keeping with Perriand’s original plans, under the guidance of her daughter, Pernette, then deconstructed and shipped to Miami, where it was rebuilt and will be on display for design aficionados to enjoy—and available for a prospective collector to acquire from December 3 to 8 as a #DesignMiami satellite.
