Mondrian South Beach hotel: sleeping beauty’s palace opens its doors. This year’s Art Basel fair in Miami evolved around one thing:  the grand opening of the Mondrian South Beach hotel. The hotel’s interior design is truly a modern fantasy, the building elegantly embracing the beautiful Biscayne Bay.

Marcel Wanders studio designed the hotel interior to create spaces that offer a sense of place, that offer an experience. The hotel had to be a fun place that makes people feel good, a romantic fairy tale. Where else would you find Delft blue tiles depicting girls and sharks, high white columns, chandelier-showers and a porte-cochere with 6 giant bells in one building?

The exterior offers entry to a magical world, including an oasis of lush gardens with an intimate pool bar, 11-foot Calvin bar lamp with a full petticoat, private red cabanas created with curtains of living foliage and even a big sandbox.

On the inside, the décor is stunning, featuring the agua spa tiled in beautiful Bisazza-mosaic and full of hidden doors. In the white- and gold restaurant people dine under crystal chandeliers set within bells that shower them with faceted light. Deep cushioned booths line the walls of the room, and the restaurant opens out onto the terrace where one can enjoy a cool breeze or escape to one of the private dining gardens and “kissing corners.” 

The Sunset Lounge offers sunset views over the downtown Miami skyline. Golden candelabras and onyx jewel-cut stools combine with ottomans and new antiques, a striking contrast of the imaginative and the forgotten.

Are you a metal head? 

Meet the family

Would you like to take a seat

Do you like your gold shiny? 

Paper is wood

Would you care for a little fright

Does glass always pass the light?  

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Do you recognise this face

This make me feel sooo happy
