This year Jean-Pierre Blanc, director of the villa Noailles, has invited Pierre Yovanovitch to design the sales area. This invitation arises following Pierre’s presiding over the jury at Design Parade Toulon 2018 and the exhibition “The Erotomania of Mademoiselle Oops.” This new shop follows in the footsteps of the design created by Vincent Darré, who was also president of the jury in 2017.
Paying attention to set its foundations in Robert Mallet-Stevens’ architecture and echoing the Villa’s Cubist garden, Pierre Yovanovitch has created a series of arches and perspectives which he has highlighted in bold colours. Faithful to his taste for opera and scenography, he has dramatised the staging of objects which contrasting materials and shapes. He has also designed geometrical furniture which responds to the rigours of the ensemble.
