Yovanovitch founded his Paris-based design atelier in 2001 after a career as a menswear designer for Pierre Cardin led him to follow his creative passions into interior architecture and design. In 2021, Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier was established having evolved from his experience creating custom luxury design furniture and lighting for his interiors. Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier pieces are designed and manufactured according to the highest quality standards.
