Alberto Pinto, born in Casablanca in 1943, was one of the industry’s greatest interior designers. His Argentine parents provided him with a diversified education and cultural sensibility. As a young boy, Pinto attended the “École de Louvre” in Paris, before moving to New York.
In the USA, he started his own photography agency, where he specialised in shooting interior design projects, landing international jobs in Mexico, England, Italy and India. Throughout the experience he acquired and developed his taste for the art, and gaining sensibility of volumes and colour pallets. These were elements that would later turn his passion into a prestigious career.
Launching his own interior design practice, Pinto set up office in a 17th century residential building in Paris’ prestigious Place des Victoires, where he and over 60 other team members worked on projects all over the world, of all scales, from residential, to corporate and hospitality assignments, as well as a fair amount of yachts and private jets.
Alberto Pinto’s international background and cultural sensibility allowed his projects to really stand out, often exploring with a wide range of design styles – experimenting with modern and oriental elements, ultimately creating unique spaces with their very own personality. This also led him to work with some very special people, from royal families to world renown celebrities.
Despite his passing in 2012, at the age of 69, Alberto Pinto’s legacy lives on through his interior design studio, which continues to embark and complete incredible work all around the world. Evidence of his work can also be found in publications such as “Alberto Pinto: World Interiors” or “Alberto Pinto: Today”
