Dino Raccanello established his architectural and design studio in Sydney in the 1980’s where he has been working on high end residential, commercial and retail projects and is well regarded for his pared back contemporary interiors and minimalist aesthetic. During that time he consulted on design for an International Brand Management consultancy based in New York which gave him an insight into the importance of provenance and authenticity. The artisanal heritage that defines the evolution of our cultures is important to him and the continued nurturing of those skills in creating enduring excellence in design and quality. Dino designs objects that express his aesthetic and works with skilled master craftsmen in Italy to create beautiful objects of high quality.
