During our stay in Miami we had the chance to meet with Italian architect and designer Piero Lissoni. Piero Lissoni hosted a book signing and cocktail reception at the Dellis Cay VIP booth at the Art Collectors Lounge of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Piero Lissoni is one of the world-renowned architects who have been commissioned to design various residences and facilities on Dellis Cay, a private Carribean island. Piero Lissoni has designed the Mandarin Oriental Dellis Cay and The Residences at Mandarin Oriental. The other architects are Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield, Kengo Kuma, Shigeru Ban, Carl Ettensperger and Chad Oppenheim. In the interview Piero Lissoni tells us about his passion for drawing, his inspirations, the differences between designing for a big city and an island, the Dellis Cay project, and why boring meetings are a phantastic place for working. Dellis Cay VIP Art Basel Booth, Art Basel Miami Beach, December 7, 2007.
