Robert Apodaca is a designer whose style focuses on simplicity of form, economy of materials and an elegant approach to problem solving. Currently living and working in Los Angeles, CA, Robert graduated from Otis College of Art and Design’s Architecture/Landscape/Interiors program in 2003. He spent several years working with various architecture and design firms, exploring what the design world had to offer. He was greatly inspired by the creative possibilities that lay within the intersections of art, design, and architecture, and knew that he wanted to do more. Driven by his entrepreneurial spirit, he has taken those ideas into the heart of a number of exciting projects including his own creative space, Fifth Floor, where he curates a unique mixture of contemporary art and design, including many pieces designed by him. Robert also consults with clients doing product development as well as designing custom features and furniture for homes. Robert is the President of the Chung King Road Association and founding member of the L.A. Box Collective, a group of sustainable furniture designers.
