Galerie Kreo which opened in 1999 in the 13th arrondissement in Paris, in the special contemporary art area called “Louise Weiss”, focuses on producing new pieces in collaboration with the world’s most relevant contemporary designers. The gallery is one of the best design galleries in Paris.
Clémence and Didier Krzentowski founded Galerie Kreo. Didier Krzentowski is a licensed expert in design and contemporary art and a member of the Union Française des Experts & Assesseur de la Commission de Conciliation & d’Expertise Douanièr. In 2008 the gallery moved and increased it’s dealing with vintage lighting and furniture.
Galerie kreo first defines itself as a “laboratory-space“ dedicated to producing limited edition contemporary pieces created exclusively for the gallery by luminaries such as Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Naoto Fukasawa, Jaime Hayon, Hella Jongerius, Alessandro Mendini, Marc Newson and many other recognized designers. Works by these designers are part of many of the most important private collections, as well as the most prominent museums in the world.
Alongside exhibiting pieces created by the world’s most relevant contemporary designers, Galerie kreo gradually began to also focus on historic Italian and French lights hailing from the 1940s to the 1980s.

What makes Kreo different to other contemporary design galleries that commission work, however, is the intimate involvement of Krzentowski. “Some people have the ability to inspire projects, and he’s one of those people,” says Jasper Morrison, who has made work for Kreo since 2000. “He has the skill of an art dealer combined with the knowledge of a designer, which is very rare.”
Galerie kreo is recognized as one of today’s most important and influential design galleries.
