Born WASHINGTON DC, United States, 1987

A New York based interior and furniture designer, Zinser is inspired by ancient art and mysticism. His design ethos is driven by the belief that the furniture and objects with which we live have the potential to enhance our well-being. He imbues his work with the age-old belief that furniture and objects have spiritual significance in our lives 

Zinser’s work seeks to recontextualize ancient, ritualistic art for contemporary life by modernizing designs in both form and materiality. Adopting additional aesthetics from the Art Deco and Brutalist movements, his furniture lives timelessly between eras. Employing fine finishes and working with storied artisans, Zinser’s passion for excellence comes to life in refined detailing and construction techniques

Taking an unconventional path to furniture and interior design, Zinser is a graduate of NYU’s Gallatin School for Individualized Studies. After many years designing runway shows and photo shoots for the fashion industry, Zinser established his eponymous design studio focusing on interiors and furniture in an effort to create spaces and objects with a greater sense of purpose and permanence

His interior design clients have included clare v, the row, theory, goop, glossier, re/done, 3.1 phillip lim, raf simons, jennifer meyer, bureau betak, and fila. His work has been featured in architectural Digest, the new york times style magazine, Elle decor, and surface
