Founded in New York in 1984 by one of the top interior designers and architects David Rockwell, the Rockwell Group creates the most extraordinary designs all around the world. The group of over 250 people with offices in New York, Madrid and Shanghai specializes in a wide array of work from luxury hospitality, cultural, and healthcare projects, to educational, product, and set design.
Some of the greatest works created by David and his team include interiors of Nobu and the W Hotels, the exuberant Mohegan Sun Casino, the pop-tastic scenery for the Broadway musical Hairspray and the sublimely hilarious high-modern sets for Team America: World Police.
The group won quite a few awards in the recent years, including 5 times Conde Nast Traveler Best Hotel in the World, Wallpaper* 2012 Finalist of Best Business Hotels, 2009 Emmy® Awards Winner for Outstanding Art Direction For Variety, Music Or Nonfiction Programming, 2001 Presidential Design Award, 3 nominations to Tony Awards for Best Scenic Design or multiple recognitions and awards from Interior Design Magazine.
In 2014, to mark the 30th anniversary of the company, the Rockwell Group published a book What If…? The Architecture and Design of David Rockwell. The book itself reflects designers’ interest in materiality and sensory experiences by using innovative and unusual silkscreen, binding, and printing techniques. Narrator and contributor voices are highlighted using different typefaces, bringing personal perspectives and behind the scenes details to life.
