Creative Director, RIOS
Sebastian Salvadó is a Creative Director at RIOS. His strength as a designer stems from his ability to identify and execute solidly articulated concepts, and he’s involved every aspect of design, from practice to education. Sebastian’s wide range of experience enables him to excel in many disciplines, to find solutions as conceptual as the initial design idea and as specific as the furniture that completes the project. Since joining RIOS, Sebastian’s contributions have expanded the studios’ multidisciplinary expression, with work that spans scales from large, urban mixed-use, to institutional, to residential, to furniture that solve complex problems with bold, integrative designs. Sebastian’s wide range of design experience is complemented by his background living in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, and New York, which informed his cultural understanding. He was formerly a teaching assistant at Columbia University and an instructor at Tulane University.
