Reynold Rodríguez earned a degree in industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1993. He is the recipient of many awards, such as the I.D. Magazine Design Distinction Award in 1998 for his interior design work, and was a finalist in the Sixth Osaka International Design Competition, Japan, for his work in aerodynamic architecture. Currently, Rodríguez heads a design studio in San Juan, specializing in the design and production of furniture, interiors, and special projects.

“I study the relationship between objects and how they are made. My design ideas are expressed as narratives of the conceptualization process. The growth of our design studio, a source of creativity and production, allows us to develop projects that combine new techniques and materials, giving us the opportunity to challenge traditional standards of industrial design in Puerto Rico.”
