Danao Living

A life of beauty, inspiration and creativity

A life of beauty, inspiration and creativity—this is the world that Danao Living considers its own. Inspired by the lush, beautiful surroundings of Bali, the founders of Danao admired how in this tropical setting, everyday life was embraced in its natural environment, with no division between the inside and outside. It was this harmonious energy and soothing relationship with nature that Danao was founded on. Since 2000, it has been the company’s mission to design beautiful and comfortable furniture to enjoy and embrace the outdoors.   

This simple philosophy has led Danao Living to become a leading supplier in the global hospitality industry and high-end residential markets. Craftsmanship, professionalism, sophisticated, beautiful design—for close to 15 years, Danao Living has been providing furniture to some of the best hotels and resorts around the world.

We welcome the opportunity to work on new and exciting projects.

Marmol Radziner

Design Principal Ron Radziner, FAIA, and Managing Principal Leo Marmol, FAIA, founded Marmol Radziner in 1989 with a shared vision in mind – to unite building, landscape, interiors, and furnishings with a single modern viewpoint.

“Marmol Radziner’s approach toward design-build is rooted in a Modernist ideology that prizes quality, beauty, and efficiency,” says Leo.

Early in the company’s evolution the principals recognized that, to achieve the quality control they value, they needed a committed in-house team with a wide range of capabilities. Today, the architect-led design-build firm brings together architects, interior designers, landscape architects, construction crews, cabinet makers, metal fabricators, and carpenters all under one practice.

“One way Marmol Radziner connects an interior experience with the surroundings,” says Ron, “is by designing finely detailed furniture whose beauty lies partly in the expression of the materials and construction methods.”

Composed of rich materials like stainless and blackened steel, teak, walnut, and plush fabrics, Marmol Radziner Furniture include collections for indoor and outdoor living.

Marmol Radziner have designed the Desert and Onda Collections.
