Tribute to Alberto Pinto

by Joelle

A world traveler and elaborate, frequently fantastical decorator, Pinto amassed a clientele ranging from Middle Eastern petroleum billionaires and politicians to celebrities. He was 69.

Born in 1943 in Casablanca, Pinto spent his childhood in Morocco. His tours across Europe and the rest of the world with globe-trotting parents would influence Pinto’s exotic, global design vision later in life.
