Nasir and Nargis Kassamali and Luminaire present DesignLove, an exhibition at Design Miami and online auction benefiting the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. DesignLove stems from an original collaboration between the groundbreaking French design magazine Intramuros and the innovative science company DuPont. Gifted to Luminaire for the 2011 edition of the design showroom’s philanthropic Love Series, the exhibition boasts original works in DuPont Corian solid surfaces, shown together for the first time, to be sold through the online auction.
A profound unity with friends and colleagues for a singular cause defines Luminaire’s Love Series, the company’s ongoing initiative to fight cancer using the transformative power of design. Beginning five years ago, with PuppyLove, and continuing two years later with PaperLove, Luminaire has reimagined the possibilities of philanthropy. The long-standing relationships between Nasir and Nargis Kassamali and the design community, paired with the generosity of Luminaire’s loyal clientele, have resulted in combined donations of over $700,000 toward fighting this disease.
The DesignLove Exhibition will take place from Monday, November 28th – December 6th at the Luminaire Lab 3901 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami Design District, 10am-6pm
