Talking Heads with Pierre Yovanovitch, Interior Designer, Paris
In conversation with Jean-Pierre Blanc, Director Villa Noailles, Festival de Hyères, and Youri Kravtchenko, architect and professor, Interior Architecture department HEAD – Genève
Extreme luxury tempered by a restrained, purist sensitivity defines the “Made in France” signature of interior designer Pierre Yovanovitch whose projects stand out for their refined sense of architectural scale over ostentation and fickle design trends.
Since 2001, prestigious commissions include a 5-star hotel in the heart of Paris, a 17th century château in Provence, high-end contemporary residences in New York as well as the scenographies of a number of international exhibitions. Each commission is conceived as a one-off project tailored to the space as well as the personality and lifestyle of the client.
A true sense of strength and sobriety characterizes a Pierre Yovanovitch interior, achieved through a masterful interplay of harmonious volumes and strict lines softened by lighting and authentic materials – wood, stone, marble, metal. All floors, lighting fixtures and furniture are made to measure, working with an elite network of artisans. An eclectic, curated selection of works by international designers underscores the couture approach. Sobriety, balance, comfort and modernity are his key words. The ultimate perfectionist, Pierre Yovanovitch conceives each project as a work of art.
