Professional Bio from BHDM:

"Trained in branding and interior design, Dan Mazzarini began his career working with Kramer Design Group in New York City. He was quickly made lead designer on the global re-launch of the Michael Kors brand, a $30 million project that saw his designs implemented in over 2,000 locations in the U.S. and abroad. At 24, he was appointed Design Director and increased the interiors and branding business by more than 300 percent. With Kramer, he directed projects for clients such as Calvin Klein, John Varvatos, Shiseido, Movado, Narciso Rodriguez, Waterworks and Nautica.

In 2006, Mazzarini was tapped by Ralph Lauren to join its renowned store design team. During his 6 years as Director of Decorative for Polo Store Development, he helped develop the diverse range of aesthetics of the entire Ralph Lauren family of brands. He designed and installed over 150 Ralph Lauren flagship stores in more than 16 countries, amounting to over $50 million of decorative sourcing and purchasing.

With BHDM, Mazzarini’s roll is that of interpreter, narrator, curator and manager. With a keen skill to intuit the essence of a client, he conjures up a unique story to create a design with both familiarity and the unexpected concurrently. Mazzarini manages many trades and projects simultaneously, always with a focus on the brand essence of the customer. His extensive world travel is reflected in the design inspiration, artisans, resources, and found objects that make BHDM’s project solutions as unique as each client."
