Lenny Kravitz attended the recent Milan furniture fair where he designed chairs for furniture company Kartell and wave-inspired tiles for Lea Ceramiche.
The chairs are based on designer Phillippe Starck’s “Mademoiselle” armchair and come in python, leather or fur.
Kravitz also designed black and white tiles for Lea Ceramiche that were inspired by water drops and waves.
Kravitz said he had always been interested in interior decorating and wanted to create pieces that he couldn’t find or copied ones that he couldn’t afford himself.
“Since I was a kid, it was always important how my room was put together. I would buy all these posters, fabrics and lighting, and I would make the room the way I wanted it to be. The most important thing was to create a vibe. Once that happened, ‘my world was set’,” he said.
In 2003, Kravitz founded Kravitz Design Inc. and has since worked with Swarovski on a set of chandeliers and designed a Miami Beach recording studio along with the Florida Room lounge at the Delano Hotel in Miami.
