Robert Kuo

He was born in Beijing, grew up in Taipei, and has made his mark in Los Angeles. Architectural Digest called him the King of Cloisonné, the Raja of Repousse, the Lord of Lacquer. Others have called him the Imperial craftsman of the 21st Century.

His father was considered Taiwan’s Cloisonné master. His work is on permanent display at the Smithsonian and the Vatican.

Robert’s pieces sit in the Tokyo Grand Hyatt, Singapore Ritz-Carlton, and New York Four Seasons to name a few. Baker Furniture, McGuire Furniture and Gump’s in San Francisco also feature his work.

Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Will Smith are a few celebrities who have become fans.

He’s also been called a bit of a Dr. Seuss for the whimsical themes he creates. We met in his factory – a magical place filled with colossal snails, animated penguins, and pears the size of phone booths.
