Ryan Korban doesn’t have the typical work history of an interior designer or architect; after graduating from The New School in New York, he started his career without any formal training. It was the passion and love for curating and designing things that has been a prominent motivator on his journey to becoming a renowned interior designer. He developed his unique design aesthetic and soon left his mark with his characteristic style by mixing luxury and old-world romance with his urban cool. The up-and-coming designer found a lot of his inspiration in paintings from Monet and photographs from Helmut Newton. He redefines traditional design for a new generation by creating seductive, wondrous spaces.

The luxury-minded designer has an obsession for antiques and fine furniture and soon developed his talent by merging the worlds of fashion and interior. With his eclectic use of exotic skins, textural fabrics, and sleek surfaces he made himself a name and designed some of the most luxurious spaces in New York’s retail landscape. Among his customers are fashion houses such as Alexander Wang, Altuzarra, Balenciaga and Aquazzura‘s opulent flagship store on Madison Avenue.
