Design Miami is an international design show. Design Miami is held annually in December in Miami, Florida. Its sister show, Design Miami Basel, is held annually in June, in Basel, Switzerland. The show's current director is Rodman Primack.

The show began in 2005 with Design.05, and was declared an instant success, and the show expanded into Switzerland, and was renamed Design Miami. Both shows run parallel to the Art Basel and Art Basel: Miami Beach sister shows.

Design Miami gives out two awards every year: the Designer of the Year Award and the Designer of the Future Award. Some of the past winners include architect Zaha Hadid, industrial designer Konstantin Grcic, Swedish design studio Front, artist Graham Hudson, interaction designers Marcelo Coelho and Jamie Zigelbaum, berlin-based conceptual design studio Beta Tank, Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka.
