French architect, who studied interior design at the Camondo school of interior design in Paris, and two years after graduating founded his own agency in Paris in 1975.

His style influenced a number of personalities including François Mitterrand, who asked him to design part of his private apartments in the Elysée Palace in 1982. Soon after, the mayor of Nimes, Jean Bousquet, commissioned the redevelopment of the city hall and the Museum of Fine Arts.

Jean-Michel Wilmotte earned his degree in architecture in 1993, allowing him to work on large scale projects and to develop the concept of "interior design of cities." Over the years, the agency has diversified and operates primarily in five key areas: architecture, interior design, museology, urbanism and design. Attention to detail allows Wilmotte and his team to work from the smallest to the largest scale: moving from a house to a skyscraper, from a shop to a corporate headquarters, from a gallery of art to a museum, and from street furnitures to urban design. The Firm is now established in four locations in Paris, one in Sophia-Antipolis, one in London and one in Seoul.
