Top 3 Parisian Interior Designers: Potisek, Champsaur and Joseph-GrafWednesday 29 April 2015
Top 3 Parisian Interior Designers: Potisek, Champsaur and Joseph-Graf ⇒ François Champsaur, Franz Potisek and François Joseph-Graf are the top three French interior designers, and all of them have very different styles. They have given a whole new dimension and meaning to design and luxury. Now, explore a bit more of each one of them with CovetED Magazine.
François Champsaur was born in Marseille but has lived in Paris since the late 80’s. His Mediterranean roots have influenced his work. He has a Diploma in Fine Arts from ENSAD (École Nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs) in Paris. Champsaur created his interior design office and furniture in 1996. Since then, he has become quite successful in other sectors, such as restoration (Café de l’Alma), hospitality (Hotel Montalembert) and fashion (Nina Ricci).
His designs are seductive yet show the image of an optimistic world. His vision and discretion allows him to transform design spaces into living creations.
As soon as Franz Potisek arrived in Paris he became friends with antique collectors that helped him improve his cultural sense in the decorative arts. Known for his eclectic taste, Potisek has an affection for objects of the most varied movements of the twentieth century.
Franz Potisek relishes the idea of comfort while designing his interior pieces. He sees it as a way to create harmony. A real designer constructs beautiful and original projects, one knows how to create the perfect setting. Potisek is a classic interior designer however his work is not limited to a specific artistic movement.
Besides being a designer, François-Joseph Graf is also a historian. He started his career under the mentorship of famed Versailles curator, Pierre Verlet. Now the architect, whose clients range from Valentino Garavani to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, is bringing his reverence for the past into a line of luxurious furnishings for Fendi Casa.
For François-Joseph Graf, architecture is a passion; its history a pleasure; and its expression a profession. This vocation requires rigour and dedication, it’s necessary to fully understand the meaning of art, people, and places in order to design. Interior decoration emphasises the noble and minimalist architecture. It highlights the ability to refine and create new aesthetics that will envision a ground-breaking XXI century.
