Pierre Yovanovitch will hold his 'Love' exhibition in New York from 6 November 2019 until 4 January 2020. The designer explores the theme of love with his latest collection of furniture and lighting.
Pierre Yovanovitch is best known for his playful furniture and interior designs. In our 'Imagicasa Winter 2018-2019' edition, we already showed you his 'made in France' stamp, which he leaves behind everywhere. Since then, we can't get enough of his works, which are always characterized by strength, sobriety and harmony. Today we would like to take you with us to an exhibition that Yovanovitch is holding in the R & Company Gallery in New York entitled 'Love'. Yovanovitch presents more than twenty new pieces of furniture and lighting that were created especially for this occasion. The name and theme of the exhibition and collection fits well with Yovanovitch's often playful, soft and cute furniture designs. Just think of his bear sofas and 'Oops' chairs. The new pieces are also a perfect match for love. Cushions have the shape of lips, the supports of chairs look like hearts and the hands and arms embroidered on the sofas seem to embrace the furniture.
“Yovanovitch is the key to the future of French decorative arts"
With this new collection, Yovanovitch explores variations on the theme of love. The setups have rich colours, a lot of texture, playful graphic elements and soft lighting. As the designer loves stories, this was also integrated into the exhibition. Visitors are led by a narrative around a central and recurring character in Yovanovitch's works: Miss Oops. In this way you can see, through various domestic scenes, the emotional evolution that Miss Oops goes through in her budding romance. You start in the salon with fire-red walls where the heart cushions and a pillow on which lips are embroidered are. Afterwards you continue to the purple dining room where we find the famous 'Madame Oops' and 'Monsieur Oops' chairs. Yovanovtich gave these chairs a face for this collection. After the romantic, red and burgundy boudoir, you come to the last scene, the pink bedroom where the 'E.T.' lamp also comes back. To further decorate the different 'rooms', Yovanovitch also selected some contemporary works of art from galleries such as Perrotin, Kehmann Maupin, Salon 94, and so on. An exhibition that is definitely worth a visit. According to Zesty Meyers, co-founder of R & Company, Yovanovitch is "the key to the future of French decorative arts" after all.
