I love his work and find his talent intriguing. My mom first introduced his design to me about 8 years ago and we have since been collecting his books and have enjoyed reading about him in several magazines. I recall hearing somewhere that he is actually dyslexic, but this disability has never stopped or discouraged him. Instead, he heavily relies on his keen eye...He is one of my favorite designers and I hope you also enjoy his work.
"In the world of design, Vicente Wolf has been at the top for over 30 years. From the spacious light-filled loft in New York City, where his company is headquartered, Wolf and his team build on his passion for design that’s guided by integrity and simplicity. He maintains this focus throughout his many creative endeavors: photography, art collection, interior design and global travel.
Wolf’s portfolio offers a snapshot of the ultimate American aesthetic, from multinational conglomerates to private homes, from hotels to restaurants. His list of residential interiors is expansive and includes homes in the United States and abroad in France, Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Sweden. House Beautiful named Vicente Wolf one of the 10 most influential designers in the United States, and Interior Design Magazine inducted Wolf in its Designer Hall of Fame. He was selected as one of the top 100 designers in both Metropolitan Home’s "Design 100" and Architectural Digest’s "AD 100". Wolf is also the publisher of two books, Learning to See (Artisan, 2002) and Crossing Boundaries: A Global Vision of Design (Monacelli Press, 2006), that focuses on the many design inspirations found throughout the world through the eyes of a traveler. He is currently planning his third book for launch in 2009."
