Rémi Tessier

History

Superyacht designer Rémi Tessier began his career as a cabinetmaker, leaving home in 1979 aged 15 to join the Compagnons du Devoir of Tour de France – a traveling trades guild of carpenters, stonemasons and other artisans that has its routes in the Middle Ages. He left the Tour in 1987 and sought work redesigning shop interiors, gradually progressing into residential projects until a client asked him to do the interior design for Perini Navi Squall in 2000. Following that Tessier, had moved his studio to Paris, was asked to design a second Perini yacht interior and his reputation grew. Rémi Tessier lives in Paris and has a studio and showroom nearby above the Gagosian Gallery.

Notable yachts

Rémi Tessier yacht interior designs are among the most sought after in the industry and Tessier superyachts include Ernesto Bertarelli’s Vava II, the 49 metre superyacht Satori, Feadship Kahalani and Fitzroy Yachts Zefira.

Specialisations

As a cabinetmaker, Tessier has an intimate understanding both of materials and how they work together. As a result, Tessier furniture designs feature strongly in his portfolio. There is also a new collaboration between Tessier and Baccarat for a unique design of crystal taps that are lit from within. Rémi Tessier superyachts have won many awards, including the Heesen Satori, Feadship Kahalani and Aslec 4.
