And the winner is......(drumroll please)  Vito Acconci from Acconci Studio.  He's joined the likes of Marc Newson, the Campana Brothers, and Konstantin Grcic for the esteemed award from Design Miami.  You may be asking, who is this Vito and is he cute?  The answer is "Who Cares", just look at the work below and you'll understand why he was chosen.


How fuc*&ing cool no?  and as his predecessors have done, such as Marc Newson's fence for DASH, Vito will be producing a climbing-playing structure titled the Klein-Bottle Playground for Miami.  This was originally developed for the humanitarian “Art for the World” program, as part of a touring exhibition of experimental recreational equipment and toys for refugee children.  The installation of Acconci Studio’s Klein-Bottle Playground in the Design District will provide the first public area in the neighborhood dedicated to children.  YAY!
