Bruno Moinard
Bruno Moinard

It is undoubtedly his origins in Dieppe, his fascination for the sea and the alabaster coast that created his love of light, strong clean lines, transparency and the essence of things. A graduate of l’Ecole nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d’art, he began his career in 1980 with several prestigious collaborations, particularly within the agency Ecart International founded by Andrée Putman. In 1995 Moinard founded his own agency 4BI, which is today recognized and sought after for its diverse and varied interior architecture, as well as furniture created by the best craftsmanship. Warm minimalism, simplicity without austerity, elegance and timelessness... it is around these expressions that the work of Bruno Moinard is defined. Added to this, an approach toluxury in a manner of looking at things, attenuating effects, rendering precious the things that are hidden from view, abundant in the art of detail and finish. Creating new spaces while recreating others, the projects signed by 4BI are bespoke works that reinterpret the references to the past while remaining contemporary, bringing warmth to the barest interiors, and cultivating the art of simplicity. Far from being ascetic, it carries with it a dreamlike quality. For here, minimalism is always loaded with meaning, brought back to human scale. For his apartments and private homes, hotels, luxury boutiques, public spaces, scenographies and cultural spaces, Bruno Moinard puts as much heart and passion into his work with light, the key to all else, as to determining the choice of noble materials, such as glass, marble, velvet, bronze. This is also as true for the furniture he has designed for the Interna and Promemoria as for Ecart International and his new collection produced under the name of Bruno Moinard Editions, available from his Parisian gallery open since January 2014. From the beginning, his agency 4BI has been more than just an interior design studio, but rather a laboratory of style which has stayed true to the original philosophy: to reinterpret places without erasing their souls, to create surprises, and do so without simply following fashions.
