Espasso, a contemporary Brazilian design gallery, premiered furniture pieces at the Shore Club Miami Beach’s penthouse recently.
The Espasso event, during Maison & Objet’s Interior Design and Lifestyle Summit in Miami Beach last month, honored the summit’s designer of the year, Zanini de Zanine. Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel and Philippe Starck have received similar honors, according to a press release.
The Shore Club‘s owner, HFZ Capital, was recently denied a request by the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board to begin demolishing most of the adjacent Cromwell Hotel . The Cromwell will eventually be part of a super luxury condo-hotel complex anchored by the iconic Shore Club hotel at 1901 Collins Avenue.
The board did allow HFZ to pursue plans for renovating the Shore Club. — Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz
