remi pesce – in his atelier at st paul de vence

  I am a strong believer in being in the right place at the right time; in walking through open doors and welcoming unexpected opportunities.  Call it destiny if you wish, or fate, it doesn’t really matter.  I just know that I’m extremely happy when in uncharted territory, wondering what is just over that next horizon.

Early century design contemporaries, they actually worked together on many...
