Director of Retail Design & Development

Blue Bottle Coffee


Arion Paylo was a featured speaker at RetailSpaces’ 17.

The son of an artisan carpenter, Arion was initially drawn to the keyboard instead of the table saw. After 11 years at Apple he’s gone from thinking about how Genius Bars work to how coffee bars work. At Blue Bottle, he strives to create beautiful cafes that foster memorable moments with delicious coffee.
