Top Interior Designers: Alberto PintoSaturday 15 June 2019
Born in Argentina, the late Alberto Pinto is still regarded as one of the top interior designers in the world. Pinto attended “Ecole de Louvre” in Paris and then moved to New York. After having attended the “Ecole de Louvre” in Paris, he created a photography agency in New York (USA) specializing in decoration and interior design. During these shoots in Mexico, England, Italie or India, he acquired his taste for design, the sense of volumes and the game of colours. All these elements become decisive for the rest of his career. CovetED brings you all about him.
This focus on design led Pinto to take up interior design almost four decades ago. The 17th-century private residence at the Place des Victoires in Paris was the home of Pinto’s interior design and decoration agency. The agency consists of 60 people who work on the design of large scale and atypical places, such as private residences, corporations, hotels, yachts, and private jets. Notable projects include the Oceanco’s Yacht Y708and the Seaside Hotel Palm Beach, in Maspalomas.
Alberto Pinto borrowed a lot from various cultural influences since his earliest childhood. As an inescapable actor of interior design, he has built his works on the interbreeding and mixture of genders from more than baroque to less than bare. Refusing to conceive narrow and closed universes, he naturally oriented himself towards “big projects”. Used to rising to challenges which would scare others away, he particularly appreciated being given gigantic spaces in which he put together styles and very different periods in always perfect harmony.
Strengthened by his experience and always looking for new challenges, Alberto Pinto specialized himself in atypical places such as large yachts or private jets. The eclecticism of his interior design projects and his insatiable quest for perfection and for refinement allowed him to discover the best international artisans with whom he regularly surrounded himself. Following Alberto’s passing in 2012, his sister Linda, having always worked at his side, naturally took over the management of Alberto Pinto Interior Design.
