Pierre Yovanovitch began his practice in 2001 after a career in menswear design for Pierre Cardin led him to hone in on his passion for interior architecture. Based in Paris, France, with an office in New York City, Pierre now leads a team of over 40 employees. As founder and principal of his interior architecture studio, Yovanovitch has received international acclaim for his work designing residences, retail and hospitality spaces around the globe. Known for his mastery of volume and space, a central focus of Yovanovitch’s projects is his collaborative design work with contemporary artists and Europe’s most renowned craftsmen. He works regularly with distinguished contemporary art, antique, and design galleries to incorporate vintage design elements in his spaces. Keeping with Pierre’s signature style of understated elegance, Yovanovitch enlists Europe’s finest woodworkers, ceramists, glass blowers and textile artisans to create custom pieces for both his interiors and furniture and lighting works.
