Missoni x Miami: A Colorful World of Luxury
The Italian luxury fashion house of Missoni is known for its sophisticated yet positively Italian use of color and design. Echoing the same sense of refreshing uniqueness for its first-ever residential venture, the residences at Missoni Baia bring about “beautiful environments where people can experience a harmonious life with family and friends,” according to Angela Missoni, President and Creative Director at Missoni.
“I need a blank canvas, but a beautiful one,” noted Missoni when talking about her vision behind the luxury residences. “I need a view. I saw this building, and the view you can have from every floor, it's amazing.” She added, “You can wake up in the morning and feel like you have already meditated, even if you don't meditate. You wake up and say, ‘Wow, yes, here I am.’”
Missoni Baia: Design Influences and Interior Elements
“From the very beginning, the whole thinking was to design something on the Edgewater site because of its prominence,” explained architect and co-founder of Asymptote Architecture, Hani Rashid regarding the impetus of his design philosophy for the building.
“The idea (was) to produce something almost musical, demure, elegant, sophisticated, and clean,” said Rashid. “In that way, we put something in the skyline that is in dialogue with the Miami of today and tomorrow... Missoni Baia is not just a clean, beautiful, elegant statement. It's actually a kind of indication of how Miami is maturing."
As New York-based Paris Forino helmed the interior design on this luxury condo project, she summed up her design philosophy saying, "The inspiration for the interiors was clean, light, the perfect backdrop to insert the Missoni world...” And, she achieves this, with the building interiors exuding sophisticated elegance along with a splash of playful Missoni colors, fabrics, and textures, creating a vibrant yet tranquil community.
Moving into a Missoni Baia condo, residents can expect to be greeted by serene patterns and colors and kitchens that boast Blue de Savoie marble counters, dark mirrored backsplashes, plus matte white lacquer cabinets.
All master bedrooms offer a timeless, understated palette, complemented by spacious master baths featuring Dolomite mosaic and wall tiles, Calacatta Ice marble counters, and polished chrome fixtures.

Blackbook Properties Founder and luxury condo expert Sep Niakan describes Missoni Baia as “a bright and energizing addition to our Edgewater neighborhood. Buyers will find a fine balance of minimalist art, Missoni’s playful colors, and subtle Miami influences at these sublime waterfront residences.”
“From just looking at the renderings, most people easily identify elements that embody the essence of Missoni as a brand,” notes Niakan. “This brand identity, plus direct bay views from all residences, and an impressive amenity package are some of the main reasons the building is almost sold out ahead of its opening. It is equally popular among our domestic and international buyers.”

Edgewater: One of Miami’s Most Desirable Neighborhoods
Talking about location, Angela Missoni righty notes, “Miami (is) a livable city where you can have a very good quality of life, and live there all year round while working. You can live with a different approach today, putting your quality of life at the front.” To this, long-time Edgewater resident Sep Niakan adds, “Edgewater is a neighborhood for everyone can have a blast; regardless of whether you’re single, married, with or without kids, or even retired. It is one of the best Miami neighborhoods to build a life in and is close to everything you could ask for – water, parks, restaurants, shopping, transportation.”
