Passing through the gates of this castle, built in 1760 in the pure spirit of the 18th century, feels like going back in time and entering a place straight out of a fairy story, to the point where one would scarcely be surprised to run into the Lilac Fairy visiting her god-daughter there… Jorge Canete The sale of this book supports The International Literacy Foundation (ILF), which is an independent, international non-profit organisation, founded in 2010 with the aim of tackling illiteracy globally and therefore improving living standards around the world.
A Genevan of Catalan and Andalusian origin, Jorge CAÑETE did not choose to devote his life to interior design by chance. Following a career in luxury products which sharpened his sense of items of beauty (Ungaro, Bvlgari, Mugler) and an MBA, he decided to express his creativity in 3D through interior design. A diploma in “Interior Design” by the London Metropolitan University and several architectural projects at architecture studios in Rome and Geneva served as his launch pad allowing him to set up his own studio: INTERIOR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY. His work has been published in numerous magazines and in the prestigious book “International Interior Design Review” by ANDREW MARTIN, in 7 consecutive years (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015).
Each year, this work brings together a selection of the leading designers and it is considered by the profession as being the international “bible” of interior architecture. He also won the “Global Excellence Award” for the best international project in the “residence” category granted by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). This prize was presented in Paris in 2012 during the Maison & Objet fair. In 2014, he is the Winner of the 2014 International Interior Designer of the Year Award by ANDREW MARTIN, considered as the oscar for the Interior Design World.
His style proposes a poetic vision of the world where the different elements and material between modernity and memory speak with harmony and sensuality.
Jorge CAÑETE speaks fluently in French, English, Italian and Spanish allowing to deal with an international clientele. He is member of the Society of British Interior Design (SBID) and member of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA).
