Pierre Yovanovitch founded the Paris-based design atelier in 2001, an interior architecture studio, after a career as a menswear designer for Pierre Cardin led him to follow his creative passions. In his practice, Yovanovitch incorporates his signature haute couture aesthetic, in which he blends high art, architectural elements and vintage furniture, to create a refined yet unpretentious setting. He is equally known for his ability to reimagine historic spaces to fit a contemporary lifestyle whilst respecting the architectural integrity of the building. Central to his interiors work is Yovanovitch’s passion for contemporary art. An avid collector himself, he incorporates contemporary works along with commissioning established and emerging artists to create on-site works. Pierre Yovanovitch projects span globally from residential, hospitality and commercial undertakings including a Central Park penthouse, to a five-star hotel in Méribel, to a 17th century chateau in Provence. With offices in both Paris and New York City, he leads a team of over 45 employees. In May of 2021, Yovanovitch launched his own furniture brand, Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier. The new brand runs in tandem with his interior architecture practice combining the designer’s iconic made-to-measure approach with superior craftsmanship and sustainable sourcing efforts to create unique luxury furniture and lighting.

About the project

"My interpretation of the trunk is as a 'box of ideas' symbolising the creative process. In this way, ideas can be assembled in a variety of configurations to form a coherent or chaotic whole. The ideas themselves are the containers of other ideas. They can be arranged in a methodical, pragmatic way, or on the contrary, in a disorderly way. Each composition reflects the creative process. The box is made up of 27 rectangular modules which allow for a large variety of configurations. These individual modules, which can be opened from either the top or the side, and come in a variety of colorways. The interior is covered in monogrammed fabric. The boxes can be installed vertically or horizontally and are all equipped with invisible magnets to hold the assembly in place. Once assembled, it can be mounted on an optional wrought iron base providing a multitude of functions such as storage in a dressing room, as a cabinet for cutlery, and more."
