Mondrian in South Beach
Miami Beach. Designed by Marcel Wanders
A work of pure spectacle, Marcel Wanders’s design of the 4,000-square-foot Agua spa at the Mondrian combines outsize baroque gestures and all manner of decorative filigree with a monochromatic, white-on-white-on-chrome palette. The result is stunning—and very shimmery too, like a science-fiction movie set in oh-so-glam Miami Beach, which is exactly the idea. Doubles from $395.
From the Jury:
“The spa at the Mondrian in South Beach is a surprisingly whimsical environment, it’s fun, happy, and bright.” —Holly Hotchner
