Jean Louis Deniot
Ranking high on the ELLE Décor and AD 100 list of the world’s most talented architects and interior designers, Jean- Louis Deniot is a safe bet when it comes to the business of creating ambiance. The ornaments (decorations) represent his playground while his magical spaces, which are the product of spontaneous artistic inspiration, represent his trademark. Already world famous for creating elite and symbolic interior spaces, Jean-Louis Deniot has a broad repertoire, but he creates his own style by acting bold and creating out-of-the-ordinary styles, rather than churning out run-of-the-mill designs confined to the realm of safe artistic choices. However, even when presenting a contemporary work, he does not forget to resort to history and his artistic sources of inspiration, because he thinks that a work of art with claims to social and cultural relevance that can endure beyond the present time can only be created using the past and the present.
Neither minimalism nor extremism is the style of Jean-Louis Deniot. What he's after is harmony and artistic cohesion. What makes Jean-Louis Deniot’s works so appealing is how he balances out certain stringent aspects of architecture with an elegant vision, creating comfort and openness. According to his artistic vision, style should match one’s life style, create harmony and happiness, and even spread them. Jean-Louis Deniot's interior spaces, which see the classical approach and contemporary aesthetics skillfully married together, are serene, silky smooth and impressive, hailing back to other artistic periods, but never ordinary, threadbare or conventional.
Jean-Louis Deniot recently introduced his Jean de Merry, George Smith, Collection Pierre, Pouenat, Bronze d'Art Français and Marc de Berny's Sparkx Collection as well as the furniture and lighting collections he designed in collaboration with Baker.
