Design Consultant & Architect

George’s worldly designs marry contemporary classicism, timeless ergonomics, innovative materials, technology and function – it is instantly apparent that the former architect was at work in his seamless spaces. “It takes a big effort to make things simple and functional,” he says. “Great reason is often behind the smallest elements.” Art and creativity are in his genetic composition: George comes from a family of professional sculptors.
Before arriving at Cantoni in 1999, George worked as an architect and a faculty professor teaching urban architectural planning, composition and design after earning his master of science in architecture and business management. He has since designed commercial and residential spaces around the world, inspiring clients with a mantra of “creating tomorrow today.” “My motto is to contribute and arrange objects to inspire, engage and encourage positive experiences,” he says. “I enjoy bringing happiness to others.”
George believes that form, function and colors must effortlessly blend, and that “great inspiration comes from small things.” That’s one reason his closet is engineered to be as on-point as his designs: Etro, Brunello Cucinelli, Hermes, Prada, Alexander McQueen and John Varvatos are on frequent rotation.
