Lenny Kravitz: Officially a Hotel Lounge Designer
Some more Delano, Morgans Hotel Group and Art Basel news all rolled in one....
Called the Florida Room, the lounge is a modern speakeasy in the hotel's basement with smoked bronze mirrored ceilings, Swarovski crystal chandeliers, and a lucite grand piano by Schimmel, a replica of the piano in Lenny's own home. And here's how he describes the place:
"My aunt had a place in her house where everyone played, hung out, listened to music and where all the fun was had, called the Florida room," said Lenny Kravitz. "We decided to create a space with this theme in mind but that also had the feeling of the old piano lounges in the resorts back in the 50's in Florida, Cuba and New York City. I love the rich musical history of Miami Beach. The Beatles, James Brown and Frank Sinatra all spent time here. We see the Delano as having this same kind of rich history and also took cues from this to envision the place I always wanted at the beach, but hasn't existed here in a long time."
Good thing we got this backstory otherwise we would think The Florida Room was a gigantic conference room in a big box hotel somewhere.
The lounge has been opened all this week for Art Basel parties including its own opening party on Monday night and the Agent Provocateur party which was held there last night.
