Moscow, Russia, May 25, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Arch Moscow 2017 and AD Russia are pleased to present an exclusive event with internationally renowned interior designer Juan Pablo Molyneux, as he explores the journey of his prestigious work throughout Russia over the course of 15 years. This greatly anticipated event will be the highlight of the Arch Moscow 2017 events, taking place on Thursday, May 25th, during the lauded international fair. AD Russia will also feature Molyneux in their 15th Anniversary roundtable discussion, “Space and time: 15 years of interior design evolution in Russia,” on Saturday, May 27th.
Juan Pablo Molyneux is one of the most respected and iconic interior designers of our time. In this talk, he will walk guests through his most illustrious projects commissioned in Russia, including the Pavilion of Treaties in Strelna at the Konstantinovsky Palace, an extraordinary private palace, and the Russian Rooms at the Palais des Nations, the Headquarters of the UN in Geneva.
“I like to preserve a certain tradition,” says Molyneux, “but one that is open to the present, that proudly evolves with the time instead of remaining static.”
As a student at the School of Fine Arts in Paris, Molyneux was deeply moved during a cross-country journey through Russia, during which he discovered the heart of the Russian Neoclassical tradition. This clear exchange between major designers, architects and artisans of the West with their patrons in Russia, building on the classical, historic Russian architectural aesthetic, would have a great impact on all of his future projects.
Juan Pablo Molyneux is an internationally acclaimed interior designer. A committed classicist, he creates spirited interiors that are rooted in history without being historical re-creations. His work is bold, eclectic, witty ... and unmistakably his own. "I try to distill that which is expected and turn it into something unexpected," Molyneux says. "I make interiors people want to belong to forever."
Working on several continents, Molyneux has created private residences in the United States, Europe, South America, Canada, Russia, and the Middle East. His major institutional projects include the Pavilion of Treaties, in St. Petersburg, the Russian Rooms of the Palais des Nations, in Geneva, and the salons of the Cercle de l'Union Interalliée in Paris.
Molyneux has received many awards, among them the Decoration of the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres, which he was given in 2004 by the French Minister of Culture in acknowledgment of having helped to spread French culture through his design work and his support of artisans.
