Karl Fournier and Olivier Marty founded Studio KO in 1999 after graduating with architecture degrees from Paris's Ecole des Beaux-Arts. They live and work in Paris.
"The book, whose large-format photographs bear first-hand witness
to the firm's singular ability to create a modern style that feels
both sumptuous and minimalist, launches October 11, just in advance
of the museum's opening, later this month. A particularly
special part of the book is its sweeping look into Studio KO's
residential oeuvre, a collection of materially sophisticated homes
nestled into idyllic landscapes around the world."
"A feast for the eyes, this captivating volume is certainly a must-have for any design library, but will also be truly enjoyed by architects who genuinely value larger questions about living a meaningful life"
"One reason for Studio KO's growing fame is their interiors, for everything from luxury apartments to hotels, such as Andre Balazs's fantastically buzzy Chiltern Firehouse in London. The monograph, however, focuses on their first love, architecture, including their French and Moroccan villas and the Yves Saint Laurent museum. "
