5 Destinations Art And Design Lovers Must Go To In September ⇒ Summer is coming to an end and the world is preparing itself to go back to its normal, everyday life. With that comes the return of the global cultural agenda. Today, Best Design Guides brings you 5 places art and design lovers must go to during the month of September.
September is a very busy month for London, with the London Design Biennale at Somerset House (September 4–23), the London Design Festival (September 15–23), and a retrospective on architect Renzo Piano at the Royal Academy of Arts (opening September 15). If you’re planning on going, consider staying at one of the city’s most luxurious suites and book a table at Core by Clare Smyth, whose chef was recently named the World’s Best Female Chef at the San Pellegrino World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards.
Vienna will draw art and design aficionados for the Vienna Contemporary art fair (September 27–30) and Vienna Design Week (September 29–October 7). Stay at the historic Hotel Sacher Wien and take advantage of the hotel location right across from the Vienna State Opera to see a performance and indulge in some traditional Austrian cuisine at the hotel’s glamorous Restaurant Rote Bar.
Expo Chicago returns September 27–30 for its biggest edition yet at Navy Pier. The luxurious Peninsula Chicago is the fair’s official hotel partner and will host a pop-up exhibit of works in the public spaces. If you stay there, be sure to check out the hotel’s new rooftop Z Bar, which serves internationally inspired cocktails and light bites. The Viceroy Chicago is another favourite of art and design lovers.
In September, Detroit celebrates the Month of Design with a robust schedule of events happening all across the city. This is the perfect time to discover the emerging studios making Detroit, which was named UNESCO’s first American City of Design, such an exciting place to be. Be sure to stay at the beautiful new Siren Hotel, which New York-based firm ASH NYC opened in the historic Wurlitzer Building downtown.
Buenos Aires was chosen as the inaugural home of Art Basel’s new Cities initiative. From September 6–12, Buenos Aires will host a series of events and exhibitions all over town, curated by Artistic Director Cecilia Alemani. If you go, check into the Faena Hotel, a member of Leading Hotels of the World designed by Philippe Starck and be sure to go dance some tango!
