Career. Having begun his career at Pierre Cardin, with whom he collaborated for eight years, Pierre Yovanovitch opened his own Interior Architecture agency in 2001. An illustrious ambassador for French style, he has put his touch to residential and institutional projects all over the world, presenting bespoke luxury and unprecedented elegance.

Signature Style. His interiors combine an Extreme chic, with culture and clean lines, counterbalanced with the use of rare wood, marble marquetry floors, and metal sculpted doors. Ornament is pared back to the essential creating a unique style where nothing is left unconsidered.

He loves. Simple unpretentious and accessible luxury.  Decorative arts that incorporate classical and 20th century references. The work of American designers from the 1940’s to 1960’s, as well as the timelessness of Scandinavian forms like the work of Axel Einar Hjorth.

Showstoppers. His minimal aesthetic using geometric accents remains focused on comfort like the smooth lines of his armchairs, his sculpted silhouettes and incomparable plushness.

What’s up. Summer 2016 sees the designer launching a new venture for his agency with a four storey private mansion. Current projects include a wine cellar in the Douro region of Portugal, the interior architecture for the Kamel Menour Gallery on Avenue Matignon, a stand at the Tefaf show, Maastricht for the German Gallery Neuse. Numerous residential projects include a 2,500 square meter mansion on the Esplanade des Invalides, a villa in Saint-Tropez, a resort hotel in Zermatt, two master suites in New York as well as projects in Tel Aviv, Brussels and London, and a 900 square meter triplex in Cairo.
