Before the launching of its own label AMOIA Studio in 2015, Samuel (Amoia) grew up traveling internationally and working with esteemed hoteliers like Ian Schrager and Andre Balazs. This, of course, gave him the chance to open up his mind and experience some of the the world’s most prestigious living environments.

Today Samuel has built his own network of collaborations with leading industry vendors, suppliers, and artisans and started working with high-end clients whose projects he follows through all stages from pre-development construction to comprehensive interior design.

With his sculptor brother Dominic, Samuel founded AMOIA studio. Here they work on limited edition furniture and lighting, highlighting the attention to materiality. Being able to travel a lot from countries like Mexico to Congo has given him the knowledge of precious natural materials such as pyrite, black tourmaline, malachite and amethyst that they remarkably mix with hand dyed plasters, cements and precious stone.

This modus operandi opened them the doors to collaborations with DeLorenzo Gallery in NY, Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Peter Marino, Dover Street Market NY, and The Store by Alex Eagle for Soho House Berlin.

This May, Amoia will be launching both a exclusive limited edition collection for Delorenzo gallery featuring mirrors, tables, seating, and lighting. Also, receiving a “Rising Talent” award and launching a “mineral terrazzo” collection of tables and accessories with the Maison & Objet Fair in Miami May 10-13. Amoia will feature all new works with natural stones and marbles at both events.


// Prima di aprire il suo AMOIA Studio nell’autunno del 2015, Samuel (Amoia) è cresciuto viaggiando per il mondo e lavorando a stretto contatto con rinomati albergatori come Ian Schrager e Andre Balazs. Di certo, questo gli ha permesso di aprirsi e di conoscere alcuni dei più prestigiosi ambienti di vita.

Oggi Samuel ha costruito la sua rete di collaborazioni con importanti fornitori industriali, venditori e artigiani che utilizza per lavorare con clienti di lusso di cui segue i progetti in tutte le fasi, dalla fase preliminare all’intero interior design.

Con suo fratello Dominic, scultore, ha fondato lo scorso anno l’AMOIA Studio. Qui lavorano a progetti di arredi e luci in edizioni limitate, concentrandosi sull’aspetto materico. Aver avuto la possibilità di visitare tanti paesi dal Messico al Congo, gli ha permesso di conoscere materiali preziosi come la pirite, la tormalina nera, la malachite e l’ametista che mescolano con intonaco colorato a mano, cemento e pietre preziose per realizzare i loro meravigliosi pezzi.

Questo modo di lavorare ha aperto loro le porte a collaborazioni con prestigiosi marchi e gallerie come la DeLorenzo Gallery a NY, Stella McCartney, Calvin Klein, Peter Marino, Dover Street Market NY, e anche The Store by Alex Eagle for Soho House Berlin.

A Maggio, Amoia presenterà un’esclusiva collezione in edizione limitata per la DeLorenzo Gallery che includerà specchi, tavoli, sedute, e lampade. Inoltre, riceverà il premio “Rising Talent” e presenterà la Terrazzo Collection in occasione della fiera Maison & Objet di Miami dal 10 al 13 maggio.
