Robert Du Grenier Associates, Inc. was started in 1980 by Robert Du Grenier as a design studio specializing in glass sculptural pieces and three-dimensional design. Over the years, based on his strengths of creativity and knowledge of materials, Robert has worked in collaboration with architects and designers to create custom glass sculptural installations and chandeliers. These are installed in hotels (The Dorchester London), stores (Tiffany & Co.), museums (The Jewish Museum) and private residences (Bill Gates) around the world.
The company has also become well known for its design and development of innovative packaging for the cosmetics industry (Abercrombie & Fitch, Laura Mercier, Nautica) and for creating custom awards for a variety of high-profile clients including MTV Networks, CMT Music Television, and ESPN.
Robert Du Grenier is a well-known sculptor working primarily in glass, metal and marble. Much of his work is informed by nature and its effects over time on a variety of elements. Robert worked on the redesign of the flame for the Statue of Liberty and was commissioned to create and produce the 1/12th scale model from which the French artisans sculpted the new flame.
