Robert Kuo


Robert Kuo’s story bridges the gap between ancient Chinese and 21st century traditions. He gained technical expertise and learned about decorative tradition from hands on training. Robert Kuo offers a wide variety of decorative objects, from small tabletop pieces to furniture and large landscaping elements. The work can be seen around the world, from the National History Museum in Taipei to exclusive hotels such as the Singapore Ritz-Carlton, The Four Seasons New York and some of the most exclusive homes in the world. Called “the imperial craftsman of the 21st century,” Kuo reinterprets the past for the present and future and has an avid and enthusiastic base of collectors that await his new designs.

We first came across his work about 12 years ago and love including pieces in many of our projects. Our clients appreciate the hands-on artistry and craftsmanship that go into each piece. His pieces become heirlooms and are a wonderful investment in the future of high-quality design. 

Here are a few examples of our projects featuring his work.
