About the Author
Born and raised in Dublin, David Collins graduated from the Bolton Street School of Architecture.
From Dublin, he travelled to Europe, settling in London where, in 1985, he redecorated a friend’s home, a design that was later seen by Pierre Koffmann who enlisted David to design the restaurant La Tante Claire. These projects were the foundations of the earliest iteration of David Collins Studio.
Inspired by the approach of 20th century modernist titans like Eileen Gray, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe, David and Iain Watson, his business partner, envisaged a studio that employed a team covering all elements of interior and architectural practice. Over the course of his career, David Collins gathered around him designers of diverse disciplines. Each David Collins Studio project across hotels, restaurants, residential and retail, is a deeply textured interior that feels simultaneously contemporary and established, rooted in the life and traditions of its location and exemplifying The Studio’s extraordinary capacity to reinvent and reinterpret the past.
