TONY ROBINSON

Interior Designer

ABOUT

Tony Robinson has worked with many internationally recognised architects, including Norman Foster, Arthur Erikson, Denton Corker Marshall and Bob Nation.

 

He specialises in the interior design, detailing and supervision of a wide range of buildings, from hotels and embassies to retail centres and residences.

 

Tony studied interior and furniture design at High Wycombe College of Art in the UK, a college dedicated to design and attention to detail. He graduated with first class honours and gained an Industrial Art Bursary from the Royal Society of Arts, London.

 

His formative design years were spent in Sweden at the Swedish Council of Industrial Design. He became immersed in a design culture where all forms of design spoke a single language, with seamless integration. Subsequently he moved to Canada.
