Because of his aesthetic abilities, he was quickly sought after for high-end design projects such as private residential homes, retail and institutional spaces, hotels and spa installations in France and abroad.

Fabrizio Casiraghi honed his style and artistic sensibility at prestigious interior design firms specialising in hotel and retail projects, as well as various private residences across the world. He explores with colour, makes unexpected melanges, and is a master of light. His time at Dominique Perrault’s French architecture firm and his formative years at the Polytechnic University of Milan enabled him to strike the appropriate mix between poetry and Milanese refinement, austerity and purity.
Hannes Peer Architecture is a Milan-based architecture and design firm that specialises in premium retail, hotel, and residential spaces. It was created in 2009. The study of the intimate interaction between architecture, historical context, and new technology mediating between handicraft and industrial production is a recurring theme in the search for eclecticism as well as high quality in design at all sizes. The design language is stratified and eclectic, combining lyrical vision with disciplined design. The studio’s work are distinguished by their strong iconographic character, which is founded on ongoing study into colours and materials, as well as the contamination of many modern languages.
Hugo Toro is an architect and interior designer, originally from the east of France with dual nationality, Mexican and Frech. He holds a double Master’s degree, in Los Angeles and Vienna. And he graduated valedictorian from the Penninghen school in Paris. At 33, this hyperactive jack-of-all-trades already has some great achievements to his credit: the restaurants Gigi Ramatuelle or Gigi Paris, but also the Booking Office at St Pancras station in London, to name just a few recent examples. From an early age, he liked to build, invent, and cared about the detail and equipment of the cabins he imagined.

Isabel realised she had a unique talent set to decorate in a wholly vocational form when she was thirteen years old. She decided she wanted to devote her life to making environments more attractive, so she launched her studio at the age of twenty. Isabel now not only works in Spain, but has amazing projects all over the world, from the United States to France, Japan, and the Dominican Republic. In addition to her love of beauty, Isabel is affected by her travels and genuine curiosity, resulting in an eclecticism that pervades all of her works. Each of her projects begins with a meticulous and personal examination of the space’s details.
Jacques Garcia, born in 1947, graduated from Penninghen. In 1980, he became famous for the extraordinary decorating he created in his own home, the Hôtel de Sagonne erected by Mansart rue des Tournelles. In 1991, he met Diane Desseigne, who entrusted him with the refurbishment of the Barrière Group’s most precious treasures. It was a chance for Jacques Garcia to build public spaces and exhibit his work. Always a collector of royal antiques dispersed during revolutionary sales, he purchased the Château du Champ de Bataille in 1992 to serve as a showcase. The decorating of the Hotel Costes in 1996 brings him Parisian consecration. Garcia style is born, seductive and grandiose, and widely imitated. The start of a revolution that will change the face of Parisian hotels and eateries. More than 40 locations bear his name: Le Fouquet’s, l’Avenue, l’Esplanade; le Murat, La Grande Armée, Ladurée…
Jacques Grange, a French designer, is the go-to decorator for fashion icons and billionaires looking for a high-end rendition of an eclectic bohemian style. He was qualified to join the studio of the French Interior design legend, Henri Samuel, through his traditional training where he learned the important crafts of weaving, plastering, and cabinetry, as well as his attendance at Ecole Camondo for the history of architecture, design, and decorative arts, and from there, Jacques’ style developed and some would say ‘unequalled’.
