The Story of RB12, Shoreditch
After several years of working together on high-end property developments and interior design projects, Dean Louw, Rafael Borrego and Giulia Minacciolo founded RB12 in Shoreditch, with the mission of sharing their passion for contemporary designer furniture. Bringing a wealth of experience from the contract interiors industry, Amjad Aly and Margarida Jesus were soon invited to join the team and help further develop the business.
Joining forces with similarly-minded suppliers and building on architectural, manufacturing and commercial expertise, RB12 has developed into a close, tight-knit group of collaborators with a shared value of craftsmanship, materials and sustainable, ethical design. Positioned at the intersection of artisan making and manufacturing, RB12 is dedicated to innovative, strong and exquisite design.
From first-hand experience we're aware of the potential difficulties associated with sourcing customisable pieces of furniture and believe that the opportunity to appreciate the detail, tactility and functionality of a product in person is conducive to a successful project. Our design space presents collections by an international family of brands alongside each other under one roof, offering clients a unique perspective.
RB12 are much more than just furniture agents, and our Design Shop is more than a furniture showroom. Our size and industry connections allow us to be agile and provide a personalised matchmaking service to our customers. We believe that furniture is as individual as you are, so why should our service be any different!
