Alberto Pinto's new home

Located in the heart of Paris' fashion district, the Hôtel de la Victoire nowadays houses Alberto Pinto's showroom and agency. The famous interior designer is exhibiting his never-beforeseen Rio collection, consisting of chairs, tables and console tables. This is the first major step towards the opening of another shop which will take place in 2011 in a nearby street. Exclusive items, mostly gathered in South America, will be displayed there. These new developments cap a fantastic 40-year long career that the designer is currently celebrating. Well-known for his multicultural background, and the six languages that he speaks fluently, Alberto Pinto specializes in the redesign of atypical places such as an English castle, a villa in Southampton, a New York City loft, a private yacht and a Boeing jet. He now runs a team of 60 employees working on 30+ projects, including the prestigious Hôtel Lambert construction site.
