Missoni Baia in Miami, is the ﬁrst-ever branded residences from Missoni, the iconic luxury fashion and design house founded in 1953. The project located in the Edgewater neighborhood was initiated by Vladislav Dorodin’s OKO group.
The Missoni Baia is a 57-story luxury condominium tower along 200 feet of Biscayne Bay frontage and is designed by Hani Rashid, Asymptote Architecture. The interiors are a creation by Paris Forino, under the creative direction of Angela and Rosita Missoni. The landscaping of tropical plantings and reﬂecting pools is designed by renowned Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea.
Angela Missoni, Creative Director of Missoni, said: “Our design DNA is rooted in aesthetic and technical innovation. That’s one of the reasons we are happy to collaborate with the many innovative and creative individuals on this project. The idea of bringing not just the Missoni vision, but the Missoni lifestyle to a residential project is something I ﬁnd very inspiring. So when we heard about the concept it seemed like the perfect partnership. I’m looking forward to presenting the world’s ﬁrst Missoni residential collaboration and celebrating the conviviality and allure of living on the waterfront.”
Hani Rashid, with Lise Anne Couture Co-Founder and Design Partner, Asymptote Architecture, said: “Miami is today a globally signiﬁcant city, and its new architecture needs to reﬂect and celebrate this coming of age. The architecture for Missoni Baia takes its inspiration from equally beautiful and pristine sculptural works by the great American minimalist sculptors such as Sol Lewitt and Donald Judd, coupled with the mathematical poetry of the great Venezuelan artist Jesus Soto. These artists celebrated purity, musicality, and the eloquence of perfect form, and from that DNA this tower was conceived as a nod to an elegant and new Miami.”
