Pierre Yovanovitch shows new furniture at Nomad fair in St. Moritz

WATCH: Global architecture and design highlights.

French furniture and lighting brand Pierre Yovanovitch Mobilier has unveiled new pieces in St. Moritz, Switzerland, as part of the travelling Nomad design fair. The exhibit is inspired by the sophisticated simplicity and iconic craftsmanship of the Swedish-born Sportstugemöbler movement, created by the late design visionary Axel Einar Hjorth. Showing under the title New Alpine, the presentation features a series of new works by the company’s founder, acclaimed designer Pierre Yovanovitch, including a sofa, chair and lighting, as well as existing tables.

Driven by the desire to create regionally focused, locally sourced furniture – underscored by “radical modernity” – the installation is a reflection of Pierre’s long-standing design passion and mastery of scenography. The 23 furniture and lighting pieces on-show are set within three alpine-inspired rooms, allowing visitors to experience the works in-situ as if they were within a mountain home wholly created by the designer.

As with all of Pierre’s work, the furniture and lighting collection is created with longevity and exceptional quality top-of-mind. Working with specialty craftsmen, superior materials have been employed across the range, which are locally certified and sustainable wherever possible. Key highlights of the New Alpine installation include the solid oak-backed ‘Mindy’ sofa and accompanying ‘Eloi’ armchair; the new ‘Hexa’ chair – a timber-based seat offered in a vintage tapestry fabric; and a “gouged” wooden floor lamp, now available with a flared lampshade. 

The New Alpine installation will be on view at Nomad St. Moritz until March 6. Pieces are available for purchase now, online and at the brand’s showroom in Paris.

Creating custom furniture and lighting works has been an integral part of my design process since starting my practice in 2001.
