The Créateurs Design Awards will be presenting the Andrée Putman Lifetime Achievement award to French designer Pierre-Yves Rochon at an exclusive black-tie award ceremony at the iconic Hotel Ritz Paris on January 15, 2020. Rochon has built his career designing some of the most iconic hotels in the world, including the Four Seasons Hotel George V and Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills. He has also created restaurant environments for some of the world’s leading culinary talents including Alain Ducasse, Paul Bocuse and Gérard Boyer.
Andrée Putman created her eponymous studio in 1997, specializing in interior and product design. She paved the way for innovation and creativity throughout the interior design industry and has made important contributions of outstanding design significance over the years. "It is a great honor to have this award named after my mother,” says daughter Olivia Putman. “From studying piano to interior architecture and design, her lifetime achievement seems like a musical score.”
Kicking off a week of design with Deco Off and Maison et Objet, the exclusive invitation only event will also celebrate CDA nominees and leading global design industry professionals as awards are presented in six categories: Best Design - Residential, Best Design - Hospitality, Best Product Design, Best Project Photography, Best New Collection and Best Design Collaboration.

Inspired by the renowned annual Academy Awards, the inaugural Créateurs Design Awards was created with the intention of advancing innovation and creativity among designers all around the world.
“The goal was to create a community of designers, architects, photographers and press members that look at our industry not as markets or territories, but as a whole,” says Founder Yuri Xavier. “Therefore, in the past months, we've gathered some incredible creative leaders from different countries and backgrounds with the mission to uphold design excellence and celebrate people with vision.”
