The design was intended to accentuate the dynamic and lighthearted interactions and connections between the exuberant culture of Miami Beach, the owner’s impressive collection of modern art, and the apartment’s extraordinary panoramic views of the Port of Miami and the Atlantic Ocean.
In essence, the furniture and designed objects - many of which are part of LPDL Mutables Collection- are concerned with childhood pursuits that have been updated for adults: they incorporate the act of memory and playing with perception, on an intellectual and emotional level.
To that end, the space is equipped with magnetic tables created by LPDL: each one contains steel sand, placed inside a double chamber of glass, with magnets above and blow the table. Over, say, cocktails, visitors can amuse themselves during conversational lulls by playing with the table, a kind of Etch-A-Sketch for grown-ups.
Each apartment door is also an art installation. In between the social and private areas, namely the living room and bedroom, are swinging frames containing sand and water within assorted glass boxes, with individual boxes able to spin independently: these ‘landscapes’ continually change and create new impermanent forms-pretty much like Miami instals- and have the advantage of being both an entertaining and easy to maintain sandbox to play with.
