Interior Design

Orlando Diaz-Azcuy

San Francisco-based Orlando Diaz-Azcuy’s mastery of the home interior has made him one of America’s most renowned designers. One of the West Coast’s most well-respected and prolific designers, his elegantly composed rooms speak volumes for his spare, intelligent, and disciplined touch. His interiors—located in Miami and New York as well as San Francisco—combine a modernist approach of architecturally clean lines and urbane sensibility with smart flashes of bold color or a pedigreed period statement piece to balance a curated look. Regarded by professionals as a "dean of interior design" and a pioneer of minimalist design since the early 1980s, Diaz-Azcuy has been an epic if under-recognized influence to all those interested in interior architecture and design. With insightful texts on his design methodologies and sensibility, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy stands to be one of the most important interior design monographs of the season.
