Alberto Velez

“Alberto has an instinctive commitment to embed objects with a distinct personality, enabling physical works to tell their own story, have a proud, meaningful presence and enduring aesthetic relevance.”

He was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia, into a family blessed with accomplished creatives who gave him an early artistic education and fostered his unyielding curiosity for the natural world, architecture, and all things mechanical and well designed.


After completing Industrial Design studies, he moved to New York to further his education in interiors at F.I.T. He subsequently joined Studio Sofield, where during a thirteen year tenure, he led its millwork, custom and licensed design practice for a global clientele including the Gucci group, Tom Ford, Baker, McGuire, Kallista while also creating countless custom commissions for residential projects.


In 2010 Holly Hunt invited Alberto to lead her design studio in Chicago. Over the following decade he designed and developed multiple, highly successful collections of indoor, outdoor and lighting products, establishing HH Studio as a leader of modern luxury furnishings to the trade.


Alberto lives in Chicago with his wife Andreina, a photographer and their children Matilde, Emilia and Joaquin.
