NDS as a label, is shaped by the understanding of design as an always evolving but careful process of synthesis and refinement, producing ongoing collections which grow as new styles are added and introducing new collections seasonally.
In this way NDS seeks to highlight a considered process which emphasizes quality, is sustainable, and in line with the newest ideas. The same thoughtfulness and care applied to our design process is reflected in our production and business practices, making sure that every piece is made with utmost consideration towards the environment, and with care and fairness for the talented men and women that lovingly handcraft each piece offered to you. Success without the well being of everyone and everything involved, is no success at all.
NDS was the first fashion showroom in the Miami Design District (thru 2011), and was featured in the New York Times as Miami's must stop shop, as well as a favorite in Louis Vuitton and Wallpaper city guides.
Through special projects and collaborations, NDS is also interested in exploring the places Design can intersect with other fields, as a way of pursuing design innovation, new presentation formats, or novel business platforms. Recent and past projects have included artists and designers such as Hernan Bas, Martin Oppel, Paola Pivi, Confetti System, as well as important brands such as KnollTextiles, Opening Ceremony, L'arcobaleno, The Standard, Design Miami, and more.
