Michael Wolk

When John Lennon’s business manager offered Michael Wolk the opportunity to design a recording studio in New York City, Wolk immediately rearranged his classes at Pratt to accommodate his new work schedule. After completing Joko Recording Studio and graduating, he moved to Miami, where he designed and built a showroom that featured his first furniture collection before leaving to travel the world. 

Two years later, he returned to Miami and partnered with two other designers to create the city’s first multidimensional, full-service design firm, with clients including Sony, Burger King and Julio Iglesias, among others. 

ln 1984, he founded Wolk Design. Since then, Wolk’s firm has provided interior and furniture design services worldwide. “I have always wanted my legacy to be interiors and furniture that bring joy, resonate and circulate for generations.” Wolk says. Mission accomplished. 


• Neo-modern: “My style results in designs that come together seamlessly, integrating the exuberance of dynamic American modernism with the grace and elegance of European design traditions,” Wolk says.

• Cutting-edge process: Wolk Design has spent decades at the forefront of the design industry, and, as Wolk tells it, “Innovation, from virtual reality walk-throughs to three-dimensional prototypes of furniture, has become crucial to our process.”
