Meet the architect
Valériane Lazard’s designs strike the perfect balance between monumental minimalism and a warm and inviting ambiance. This is achieved by creating bold spaces softened by subtle monochromatic palettes and noble—yet discreet—materials. Timelessness offers an escape from trends and focuses instead on enduring quality.
Craftsmanship is celebrated through exclusive collaborations with artists and artisans, like the Destroyers/Builders studio, which built the lacquered wood furniture for Paris, and Jorge Penadés, who designed a table out of compressed leather scraps from Polène collections.
