“People are often surprised when I’m at the building with the hard hat on. I’m completely involved. There’d be no reason to do it unless I’m 100 percent committed.”
New York-based boutique firm, Kravitz Design, Inc., specializes in commercial and residential design projects as well as product development and art direction and brand identity. For nearly two decades, Lenny Kravitz has been widely recognized as a creative visionary, both as a successful musician and as an influential style icon. Kravitz views his life, work, and art as an integrated whole, united by a commitment to visual expression fostered by his lifelong experience with design and fashion. Kravitz’s desire to expand his creative energies beyond making music led him, in 2003, to found Kravitz Design, Inc. The members of the team share his vision and attention to detail, and they collaborate with Kravitz at every level of a project, employing a diverse range of expertise in the field.
All of Kravitz Designs’ interiors and products are reflective of Kravitz’s eclectic global lifestyle, translating his multi-faceted influences into one unified vision. The Kravitz Design aesthetic translates well to a diverse set of circumstances through its use of superior materials, unusual textures, and classic compositions. The firm believes design should be used to improve life, capture fantasy, and inspire, and the environments it creates are provocative and modern yet soulfully elegant.
Kravitz Designs’ unique take on the Kartell Mademoiselle chair (in collaboration with Philippe Starck) received extensive worldwide publicity. Kravitz Design has collaborated with SLS Hotels, iStar Residential and ST Residential on the Paramount Bay development in Miami, as well as the Italian ceramics company Lea Ceramiche, Morgans Hotel Group, Swarovski Crystal, and The Setai Group, among others. Most recently, Kravitz Design has created luxury suites for the SLS Las Vegas hotel, and for the soon-to-be-competed Baha Mar resort in the Bahamas, as well as designing a collection for Leica, called “Correspondent.”
