You may know him as a seven-time-Grammy-Award-winning musician or as Cinna in The Hunger Games, but Lenny Kravitz is also the founder of Kravitz Design. Since 2003, the Miami-based firm has created everything from Brazilian-art-inspired wallpaper, to a chandelier for Swarovski to a luxury recording studio in a resort. This year, they designed two penthouses for SLS South Beach in a contemporary, electric style. We caught Lenny for a quick Q+A about how he likes to spend his days when he’s not chilling out at the SLS South Beach.
