When French designers Raphaël Le Berre and Thomas Vevaud first met whilst studying at the École Camondo design school in Paris, they quickly found that they had incredible working chemistry between them. After graduation, however, they soon parted ways to each glean more experience from the industry.
While Vevaud joined French interior design agency Gilles et Boissier and thereafter Marseilles designer François Champsaur’s studio, Le Berre headed to New York to work for MR Architects before returning to Paris to work in restaurant design at Amar Studio. Years later, the friends once again joined forces together, launching Le Berre Vevaud in 2008.
“Despite our differing backgrounds, we have always been in perfect harmony with our decorative convictions as well as our common passion for noble materials and the art of beautiful craftsmanship,” says Le Berre.
Vevaud continues: “Our common sensibility for art history, decorative arts and contemporary architecture led us to choose this path and to create our interior architecture agency together in 2008. Opening our own interior design studio has always been part of our dream, and it was the obvious next step for us.”
To date, the dynamic duo have crafted not only beautiful interiors; they've also launched their eponymous furniture line, and have created custom decorative items for such as Dior.
