Designer Robert Marinelli artfully blends aesthetic inspiration ranging from modernist and eclectic, to transitional while respecting classic period references. His designs are not formulaic or trendy but rather a sophisticated mix of styles, luxurious materials, finishes, textures, and colors. Cast bronze and glass are discriminatingly paired with refined lacquers and veneers. Quality, comfort, proportion and attention to detail are hallmarks of his work.
Robert's pieces are as distinctive as they are timeless and will harmoniously transition into both contemporary and traditional spaces. Marinelli studied Art History and Business in Boston, London and Paris and later moved to Tokyo where he collaborated with prominent Development Corporations on specialized commercial projects in Europe and Asia.
