La Maison Pierre Frey in Cannes

News13/05/2016

La Maison Pierre Frey is very proud to be one of the suppliers of the Mouton Cadet Wine Bar in Cannes, decorated by Laetitia Sebban. Located at the top of the Palais des festivals, the lounge bar is one of the most private places of the festival. The terrace, offering an exceptional view over the port, has been fully achieved with the “Portor” fabric, which is a creation from the collaboration between the artist Mathias Kiss and the La Maison Pierre Frey. The choice of a painted marble in Sienne and Blue colors gives all its chic and contemporaneity to the space.

The “Portor” fabrics collection echoes to the Mathias Kiss personal work, continuity of a reflexion on the plitz and rigid materials distortion, by joining one of his painted marbles (Portor) with a textile.

René Prou, Patrick Frey’s grandfather, was a famous decorator well known for the decors of the large transatlantic ocean liners. In 1920, when the Art Deco movement was in full boom, that was the height of luxury and French-style refinement to travel in one of those boats.

Many years later, Yacht de Paris, with the complicity of La Maison Pierre Frey, gives a new life to the Don Juan II decor, a famous restaurant boat also conceived at the same time, when it was all about luxury and pleasure. Pierre Frey used the Art Déco geometric and stylized floral repertoire and chose plain velvets, sophisticated embroideries,  large patterns or semi-plains fabrics evoking shagreen, in blue and golden brown tones.

The blue Eventail carpet serves as a link between the two rooms of the restaurant and the small lounge. This one is decorated with a bench seat covered with “La Folie du Jour” embroidery and with a golden brown velvet sofa that contrasts with the petrol blue chairs.

The small lounge is separated from the restaurant by mahogany panels covered with large geometric patterns curtains. Silky and yellow blinds decorate the windows and a screen covered with a gold and blue jacquard brings warmth and comfort to this boudoir.

At last, comfortable cushions with cherry red and white rhombs cover the boat deck sofas.

Exhibition “inspired fabrics, Pierre Frey” – Capsule collection

News04/04/2016

To celebrate its 80th anniversary, Pierre Frey has the privilege to invest the Musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris.  More than a retrospective, this is about celebrating the creation, cornerstone of the family house activity and to highlight which is what provides its uniqueness and singularity, the Pierre Frey eye. The common thread of this exhibition is the dialogue. Dialogue between the times, between the museum collections and with the contemporary creation.

In echo to the art pieces exhibited, three artists designed a rug, a fabric or a wallpaper that will be edited in a capsule collection.

The « MONSTER GARDEN » rug by Marcel Wanders

Born in 1963, Marcel Wanders is a prolific product and interior designer and art director, with over 1700 projects to his name for private clients and premium brands such as Alessi, Bisazza, Puma, KLM, among scores of others.

His work excites, provokes, ans polarizes, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, its daring and its singular quest to uplift the human spirit and entertain. Marcel’s chief concern is bringing the human touch back to design, ushering in what he calls design’s « new age », in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited.

To reflect Pierre Frey’s textiles of the years 1980 – 1999, Marcel Wanders chose to revisit the theme of the flower, a perennial motif at Pierre Frey. In this creation, Marcel Wanders brings his personal vision by adding a friendly monster, turning the idea of the graceful and delicate flower on its head. The Monster Garden rug, with its fantasy and representations of flora and fauna, is the synthesis of the combined worlds of Pierre Frey and Marcel Wanders.

The « FLASHBALL » printed fabric  by Julien Colombier

Born in 1972, Julien Colombier lives and works in Paris. This self-trained artist honed his aesthetic eye by examining printed fabrics and Art Déco style. His first works compare to those of Henri Matisse and Keith Haring due to the joyous energy they emit. Unlike the other artists, he started by blackening a sheet of paper, creating shadows from the very beginning. Then he introduced color, bringing light and radiance. His preferred subjects are nature (forests, clouds, jungles) and geometric patterns, transforming his interpretations into colored shapes, creating an imaginary yet vibrant atmosphere, nearing abstraction. The colors applied in pastel give body to the shapes. He is widely sough after and has worked with Chanel, Baccarat and Cartier.

Currently he is exploring nature in its many forms, looking at it from all angles up to the point of nearly geometric simplification. Recently, he reintroduced paint back into his oil pastel works to create relief and drip effects.

For the exhibition presented at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, he returns to the years 1935-1959 by creating a boldly colored print which reacts differently to natural and ultraviolet lights, creating different perceptions of the fabric.

The  « NUBEM » panoramic by Benjamin Graindorge

Born in 1980, and graduate of the ENSCI Les Ateliers in 2006, Benjamin Graindorge is one of the faces of young talent in French design. In 2011, after an artistic residency at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, his first solo exhibition was organized at the Ymer&Malta gallery in Paris, where he displayed five works based on the theme of dreams. In 2012, he was voted Young Designer of the Year at the Elle Décor International Design Awards. In 2014, he worked with WallpaperLab to create a wallpaper titled Blanc sur blanc, and this year his project Paysage Domestique was presented at the Milan Furniture Fair.

His trip to Japan was a revelation for him, exploring and discovering how modernity passes through the use and mastery of craftsmanship and artisanal techniques.

With regard to Pierre Frey’s designs from 1960 to 1979, the artist created a wallpaper that explores questions of visual perception via the pixel as a unit. In this work he rejoins the spirit of early 1970s Op Art.

FAMILLE1

Since childhood, Patrick Frey use to decompress in the Norman village of Galluis, the absolute favorite place in the world of his mother, the designer Geneviève Prou. Every Friday afternoon, with his wife Lorraine, they leave the bustling city for the quietness of the countryside.

Called “La Prairie” the family home was designed by the architect Edouard Albert, famous for the first Parisian skyscraper. But earlier in his carrer the architect dabbled in a more traditional vernacular. For the Freys, he created a Normandy-style property with a wood structure, painted shutters and a rustic redbricks roof.

Patrick Frey has always used his homes as a laboratory for his firm’s fabric, wallpaper, furniture, and rugs.
