1 CHAMPAGNE BAR TABLE LENNY KRAVITZ

With four Grammys and a string of other music awards to his name, Lenny Kravitz realised in 2003 that he had another passion to fulfil: design. Thus, with the encouragement of the iconic designer Philippe Starck, Kravitz Design was born. Now Creative Director of Dom Pérignon, Kravitz has created a limited edition interiors collection for the Champagne house. It includes a luxurious coffee table crafted from black lacquer and brushed brass trims, which unfolds to reveal a built-in ice bucket and space for Champagne and glasses.
