A world-renowned interior designer takes us on a tour of the inspired public spaces he has created for his most prestigious clients. The name Alberto Pinto is synonymous with opulence and style. Internationally renowned for his designs of palaces, luxurious residences, and prestigious apartments, he has also turned his talents to the service of the corporate world, collaborating regularly with Howard P. Ronson and his group HRO to create some of the most spectacular office spaces in Europe and the United States. Foyers, boardrooms, and the problems of traffic flow receive the designer's full attention in the quest to improve daily corporate life for the buildings' occupants and visitors. Bringing into play his extensive design arsenal to express confidence, power,and stability, Alberto Pinto endeavors to equate his office building interiors with the image of the corporations that reside within them.
Each chapter is devoted to one of his corporate masterpieces - from Whitehall and Ronson's own personal office in the heart of Manhattan to Junghofstrasse in Frankfurt and the Defense Plaza in Paris - with color photographs and sketches that illustrate the designer's diverse visions of the contemporary working space.
