MILAN -- The Armani Group is pleased to announce the exclusive partnership between the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio, Dezer Development, and Related Group for the design of luxurious high-end residential units, common areas and amenities for their latest landmark project: Residences by Armani/Casa in Miami, Florida.

On a project like this, where we have the benefit of partnering with a talented architect like César Pelli, we get the opportunity to create something really very special – a remarkable living space, imbued with the spirit of modern elegance.”
“We are thrilled to partner with such a talented individual as Giorgio Armani in the further expansion of his brand into the residential real estate arena,” says Gil Dezer, President of Dezer Development. “The tower will be representative of the Armani lifestyle; it will possess distinctive luxury and unrivalled elegance, as do our other branded buildings.”
"I am delighted The Related Group is part of this collaboration with the extraordinary talents of César Pelli and Giorgio Armani," said Jorge M. Pérez, founder of The Related Group.

Armani/Casa and the Interior Design Studio
More than ten years after its foundation, Armani/Casa is a world leader in the luxury furnishings sector. A byword for elegance and style, it stems from Giorgio Armani’s living dream of a warm, harmonious, highly comfortable and sophisticated haven. Since 2003, the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio has provided complete interior design services to private individuals and property developers, from the conceptual phase through to supervising the execution. The studio's work involves developing creative solutions – under the artistic direction of Giorgio Armani – that are the product of painstaking architectural research and extensive study into the project’s cultural, geographical and architectural context. In this way, the individual designs are developed to be perfectly integrated into their settings in terms of their features and aesthetic values. The Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio’s research impacts on the selection of all materials, colours and finishes involved in the fit-out, as well as on the design of the built-in or custom-made furnishings; all of this is to ensure each design is unique and in keeping with the client’s requirements. Among the Armani/Casa Interior Design Studio’s most recent projects: Maçka Residences in Istanbul, Turkey, The World Towers in Mumbai, India and Century Spire, in Manila, Philippines.
