Andrée Putman Dies aged 87

Famed interior designer and fashion icon Andrée Putman has died at her home in Paris.


January 23rd, 2013

Born in 1925, Putman’s career came to interiors and spatial design by way of her involvement in the fashion industry.  Having designed boutique interiors for the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Putman establised Ecart in 1978 going on to redesign the interiors of the Concorde jet.  Working well into her later years she established Studio Putman in 1997 and produced the Art Deco inspired ’The Putman’, a glass fronted boutique hotel in Hong Kong.  Studio Putman is now led by her daughter Olivia, in the role of creative director.
