The Luxury Hotel Group Aman Launches Its Debut Furniture Line at Design Miami

“The key aspect of this project was not just to create furniture, but to produce works where design and space are seamlessly integrated,” says Kuma, who is also the man behind Aman’s work-in-progress Miami Beach residential tower (due to open in 2026). As is typical of the architect’s practice, what he creates takes on a cerebral appeal beyond the physicality and structure of form itself; Kuma accounts for illumination, aura, potential surroundings, and more.

Certain Aman properties have garnered extra lore, whether it be through celebrity visits or TikTok virality. Amangiri, in deep southern Utah, has become famous for its daring concrete architecture—cool gray walls and wraps, juxtaposed against the reddish cauldron of the American southwest. Amanyara, in Turks & Caicos, features outsize proportions and temple-like indoor-outdoor spaces. Aman Tokyo’s scale is breathtaking and almost hard to believe: It’s housed high up in an Otemachi skyscraper, yet its lobby features soaring ceilings and monumental sculptures.

Will the Foundations Collection look to certain Aman sites for influence?

“Our first collection takes, I’d say, from a bigger look at the Aman narrative and spirit of the brand. Moving forward, we would like to ensure we launch collections that are specifically location-inspired. So what’s not to say we won’t do an Amangiri collection, which in turn becomes the signature outdoor furniture line for the brand?”
