Discover All About The Amazing Pierre Yovanovitch’s New York StudioSaturday 27 July 2019
Pierre Yovanovitch is a Parisian designer currently living in the US. Living in New York City was a dream for the french designer that refers to this project as a “long-life dream realization”. The office brims with all the warmth and texture of a Yovanovitch-designed residence might be understood as a pied-à-Terre of sorts. Yovanovitch was also drawn to space’s strong light, and its windows, which lack moulding. He chose to mirror the building’s rust-coloured facade by painting the interior walls a matching hue. CovetED is amazed at this design project, a contemporary yet not cold and very colourfull studio in the big apple, keep reading to understand why.
The pieces don’t speak just to Yovanovitch’s own taste, but also to his awareness that his clients tend to be art collectors. It’s pragmatic, therefore, for such visitors to get the sense that Yovanovitch would be able to adeptly integrate their own collections into his designs. Doing so isn’t a chore or a hiccup but rather a natural part of his creative process. More practical yet still visually pleasing features persist. Beyond the office’s reception area is its true hidden jewel: a materials library in which clients can pull out marble slabs and other stones to make their own tactile investigations.
In the New York office’s meeting room, Yovanovitch’s Woody Armchairs are paired with the Pebble Table, which was designed by Armelle Benoit for Yovanovitch. All three pieces of furniture are from the interior designer’s Oops collection, while the light fixtures seen are vintage. Yovanovitch’s Mama Bear Armchair, also from his Oops collection. The chair is from Salon 94 gallery, while the chair is made of solid oak with custom upholstery. For those familiar with Yovanovitch’s work, his expansive 40-person Parisian office might spring to mind.
Yovanovitch’s career started in 1990. He worked with Pierre Cardin on the men’s fashion lines of the couture house, first in Brussels than in Paris, up to 2000. In 2001, he started his own Agency “Pierre Yovanovitch Architecture d’Intérieur”. He produced residential, institutional and commercial projects in France, Belgium, Switzerland, England, Israel and the United States.
In 2016, the Pierre Yovanovitch House moved into a mansion in the early 18th century, in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, rue Beauregard. A team of more than 30 people occupies a mansion completely remodelled and restored, where architecture, interior architecture, design, decoration and contemporary art cohabitate.
