BIENVENUE DESIGN gathers design galleries and design studios at the Hotel La Louisiane in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, Paris and thus gives its exhibitors the opportunity to reinvent the hotel room space.
Founded in 2021 by Olivier Robert, contemporary art gallery owner and Jean-François Declercq.
Jean-François has been invigorating the contemporary design scene for more than a decade. In 2015, he founded Atelier Jespers, a non-profit art center occupying the premises of the iconic modernist atelier of Oscar Jespers, to highlight contemporary designers within a landmark of architecture. More recently, he founded La Bocca de la Verita gallery, creating a unique space to give young designers the opportunity to exhibit their work. Jean-François has accompanied nearly 150 designers and collaborated with dozens of international galleries.
They were joined in 2022 by Marie Godfrain. Marie is a freelance journalist specialized in design, decorative arts, crafts and architecture. She writes weekly for M, the magazine of Le Monde, and also collaborates with IDEAT and Le Quotidien de l'Art. She teaches the history of design at the ENSCI and has recently published a biography of the ceramist Frédéric Gautier with Actes Sud.
