Bruno Moinard, architect, scenographer, designer, draftsman and painter, founded his agency 4BI & Associates in 1995 after leaving the team of Andrée Putman and Ecart International, which he had joined in 1979. His scenographic mastery with regards to many creations for museums, exhibitions and boutiques, including Paris’s Fondation Cartier, brought him steadily into the luxury universe. One of his strengths resides in the subtle, elegant, refined, and yet warm, integration of French culture into each of his projects around the world.
In 2002, Maison Cartier entrusted him with the new development and concept of its boutiques worldwide (350 to date), a partnership that endures to this day. Other notable projects by Moinard include Château Latour in Pauillac, France (owned by François Pinault) in two phases of work (2003 and 2015); Hôtel Plaza Athénée in Paris (2014); Veuve Clicquot’s Hôtel du Marc in Reims, France (LVMH Group, 2011); and the Balenciaga headquarters, Paris (2014). His solidly established reputation would then extend through Europe to include The Dorchester hotel in London (2014) and the Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square (2015), which includes French chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s restaurant, Le Dame de Pic. His reach has also extended to Asia, with projects in Japan and two hotels in Chengdu, China (2013), as well as chef Alain Ducasse’s restaurant in Beijing.
In 2014 he created Bruno Moinard Éditions alongside his first furniture collection, and opened his gallery on 31 Rue Jacob in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. In 2010, with Éditions de La Martinière, Moinard published his first work, “L'Architecte Promeneur”, followed by a second in October 2015 entitled “Du Trait à la Lumière,” which showcases images of some of his most iconic projects around the world.
