Marmol Radziner

Collection: Desert

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.
