After Graduating at Ecole Camondo in 2007, and working for two years at the renovation of the Parisian landmark building Printemps-Haussman, Chloé Nègre spent a couple of years in China. Upon returning to Paris she joined India Mahdavi’s studio, where she learnt all about prestigious, international projects. Driven by the desire of creating her own “research laboratory” – a cross-disciplinary workplace encompassing interior decoration, furniture, and set design– she founded her namesake studio in 2015, specialising on commercial and residential projects.
“There is a mixture of chance and intuition, triggered by a place. It is always interesting to take over a universe that is a priori foreign to us.” – says Chloé about her approach to design and interior decoration. Her goal is to invent spaces that, like identities, are unique and always different from anything else. Her first creative impulse stems from intuition; then she deploys all her inventiveness, technical skills and sensitivity to create a new original perspective, a new architectural “language” structured by an unsurpassed sense of detail. “I think of a place as a whole, so that it can be pleasingly liveable and perennial”

Much aware of the environmental challenges ahead, Chloé Nègre Studio has integrated an eco-design approach into its projects, aiming at truly sustainable practices in all aspects of the design and manufacturing process.
