Born and raised in Dorset, Robert Angell’s passion for design started at a young age where he was fascinated by making and creating things. This passion grew when Robert went to school and began designing, developing and honing pieces of bespoke furniture and lights. In 1995, after gaining a BA (hons) degree in Interior Design at Nottingham Trent University, Robert was drawn to London knowing it was the city where the greatest figures in the creative industry could be found to work alongside.
A chance meeting with David Collins was the start of a long and incredible journey which opened Robert up to an unparalleled opportunity for personal and professional growth and development. David and Robert shared the same passion for sophisticated, attentive design which delivered innovative creations from conception through to completion. Great friends and colleagues, Robert worked closely alongside David Collins for over 15 years as one of the Creative Directors of David Collins Studio before launching his own design studio Robert Angell Design International in 2010. Upon leaving David Collins Studio, in a testament to his expertise, commitment and inspired approach to Interior Design, David Collins said of Robert, ‘I have had the pleasure of working with Rob Angell at my office for 15 years. I would recommend Rob as a person of integrity and honesty. Robert is loyal, hard-working and passionate about design.’
Since 2010 Robert has developed his own style that brings references from the great modernists and the masters of the past. Robert’s design studio re-discovers and re-invents them into a modernised yet timeless aesthetic for today’s contemporaries that are unrivalled and unique in their conception and delivery.
