Miu Miu and M/M Paris create new customizable stool for Miami Design Week

Two large-scale versions of the collaborative piece of furniture were notably installed at the Miami Design District Post Office and The Standard Hotel.

The M/Marbles Stool takes inspiration from the M/Matching Colour Stool, which the Italian fashion house launched earlier this year with M/M Paris at Milan's Salone de Mobile. 

This new iteration, created in only 40 editions, features a three-legged stool crafted from walnut and palm wood in homage to the tree-lined roads of Miami. 

The piece of furniture is punctured with perforations into which hand-blown Murano glass pegs can be playfully inserted, turning the M/Marbles stool into an art piece rather than just a functional design object. 

While the M/Marbles Stool will launch exclusively at Miu Miu's boutique in Miami and online, the piece is one of the numerous fashion-meet-design highlights of the city's Art Week.

Earlier this week, French fashion house Balenciaga presented its latest collaboration with American designer Harry Nuriev, dubbed Balenciaga Sofa, ahead of Design Miami/.

For the Miami Art Week, Versace also reunited with New York interior designer Sasha Bikoff for "South Beach Stories," building on their collaborative showcase at the Milanese Salon del Mobile earlier this year. 

The exhibition, held at the Palm Court space, features six bold furniture pieces that were inspired by Versace archive campaign shots.

Fendi also teamed up with Swiss studio Kueng Caputo to create ten pieces of furniture, such as stools, benches and a stylized palm tree.

The design objects are presented in an immersive installation that takes inspiration from the iconic Palazzo della Civiltà, renowned for its signature swooping arches.
