About This Book

The first monograph on one of today’s most celebrated architects, renowned for designing interiors that combine minimalism with classic French style. When describing a space that intertwines both minimalism and elegance, the name Joseph Dirand immediately comes to mind.

The son of Jacques Dirand, one of the most renowned interior photographers of his time, Joseph Dirand is now one of the most sought-after architects. By incorporating a quintessentially French style into otherwise minimalist interiors, Dirand creates instantly recognizable spaces, known for their strong lines and meticulous precision. This book focuses primarily on Dirand’s residential interior design work in Paris and New York, while also featuring some of his acclaimed designs for the interiors of hotels, restaurants, and fashion houses worldwide. Lavishly illustrated with photography that captures the timelessness of his style, which touts impeccable proportions and breathtaking attention to detail, Joseph Dirand: Interior is a feast for the eyes and essential for anyone with an interest in interior design.

Reviews

  • "Joseph Dirand’s interiors are like the man himself: sophisticated and chic in a way that only the French seem to be. His spaces exist in an alternate reality where there are no trends and one’s home will never go out of style."

    "The interior designer Joseph Dirand is the torchbearer for contemporary French interiors. . . . His home plus other projects including the Paris locations of Chloe and Balmain are featured in his first book Joseph Dirand: Interior. "
