Company Philosophy
As an architect, Robert Couturier's first demand is the conception of interior spaces and volume. It is the part of Interior Design that nobody will notice at first but that will give to color, light and furniture their true sense of existence which is to create a strong feeling for people to move into their own private world.
Robert Couturier and his team try to reconciliate in their interiors what was always the basis of architecture: the high rigor of classicism and the most radical modernism. This gives him and his clients an open and wide space of imagination where shapes, colors and textures can go from "pure abstract white" to bright red through all the colors of nature. Those of the sky, the earth, the stones and water and also from the purest of linens to the most sophisticated embroidered silk.
Every project is a story: the private, personal adventure of each client. What we have to create for and with them is at the same time, this deep sense of comfort and intimacy that our world requires and the feeling of an open and free life.
