He has been the king of the world of interior design, Peter Marino ever since founding his firm in 1978. A graduate from Cornell University, he began his career at Skidmore Owings & Merrill, George Nelson and I.M. Pei/Cossutta & Ponte. A collector of bronzes, which were shown at The Wallace Collection in 2010 and of furniture and sculpture by Claude and
François-Xavier Lalanne, he designed the retrospective of their work entitled Les Lalanne, at the Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris, and supported the restoration of Pierre Chareau’s 1925 Bureau de l’Ambassade Française, one of the museum’s famed period rooms. He designed so many amazing interiors, including the home of Giorgio Armani and he is a lover of design history. Now, curator Jérôme Sans is organizing a show at the Bass Museum of Art entitled "One Way: Peter Marino," an exhibition that explores the renowned American architect’s multifaceted relationship with art. And I cannot wait.
