Alberto Pinto

History

Superyacht interior designer Alberto Pinto did not come from a traditional design background. Born in Cassablanca to Argentine parents in 1945, he grew up amidst a variety of cultural influences and studied at the Ecole de Louvre in Paris before heading to New York to set up a photographic agency specialising in decoration and interior design. Drawing on this experience, he took up interior design using a variety of decoration styles from bold patterns and Baroque to space-age minimalism. Over four decades Alberto Pinto luxury interiors diversified from hotels, private residences and palaces into superyacht interior design and private jets. Since his death in 2012 aged 69, Alberto Pinto interior design has continued through his agency based in Paris which employs 60 staff and which is overseen by his sister and business partner, Linda Pinto.

Notable yachts

His first yacht project was created for a Gucci heir, and since then Alberto Pinto has applied his eclectic interior decoration styles to a variety of large luxury yachts. Alberto Pinto superyacht interiors include the iconic yacht Alfa Nero, 72-metre Dunya Yachts Axioma (ex-Red Square) and Oceanco’s 85.6 metre St Princess Olga.

Specialisations

Aside from superyacht interior design, Pinto’s agency has created large-scale interior decoration and design projects for private residences, palaces, hotels, corporate clients and private jets. Pinto collections include plates, linen, and bespoke furniture. Alberto Pinto awards include World Superyacht Awards and a ShowBoats Design Award for Oceanco Alfa Nero.
