The tower harnesses the essence of the Cipriani brand, which is recognized for its sophisticated style, world-class service and four generations of history and tradition that goes back to the launch of Harry’s Bar in 1931 in Venice, and marries Miami’s modern aesthetic with Cipriani’s nautical Venetian heritage. Interiors designed by 1508 London, are an authentic interpretation of the brand. With subtle nods in the choice of furnishings, materials, finishes and color palette, the design is an amalgamation of features directly inspired by Cipriani’s most beloved properties.
