A bit of 1960s London planned for Brickell

London is calling at The Bond on Brickell, a 328-unit, 44-story condo tower set to break ground later this year that will be adorned with vintage prints by British celeb photographer Terry O’Neill, “melted” steel and a lit-up Abbey Road. The Bond’s developer, Rilea Group, tapped Mexico City-based Loguer Design to outfit the building’s lobby and other common areas, according to a company release.

“We approached The Bond with the goal of creating an ambiance that would feel like home to London’s legendary jet-setters of the 1950s and 60s, as well as the jet-setters of today,” Ramon Alonso, senior partner of Loguer Design and head designer of The Bond, said in the release. The result: pin-striped granite floors in the car entryway and an illuminated crosswalk-homage to The Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover.

The 60s-swinger concept continues into the lobby, where O’Neill’s photographs of Sir Elton John, Bond girl Barbara Bach, and Sean Connery, lounging in Gaetano Pesce’s UP 5 chair, will be prominently displayed against hand-stitched leather and suede walls. A contemporary version of the gray cashmere chair in a photo of Connery will be placed directly beneath the image, as part of The Bond’s permanent collection, the release said. — Emily Schmall
