We were lucky to get a unique insight on how the French designer started his career and established himself in the US. Early on in his professional experience he was highly involved in the furniture industry, and worked for a well-known designer in Chicago. During that period he discovered hospitality and restoration projects, and residential design, where he realized that he could apply much of the experience he had acquired throughout his youth to each of them. After 14 years, François Frossard was asked to come down to Miami to help with some projects. This trip changed his life, and Miami looked like a new start for the designer.

In 2002, Francois set a new standard in Night Life Design after unveiling Prive for The Opium Group, a nightclub firm known for their celebrity clientele. This made his popularity spread around the world together, establishing his signature design with it.

For François Frossard, Celebrating design with friends means the interpretation of himself, his soul. It is more about being able to interplay the project from A to Z. According to his point of view, “luxury is not actually defined by money”, but “what everyone feels is luxury”. Everybody has a standard of what luxury should be about. “You cannot redefine luxury looking at some amazing palaces and places” he explains.

In terms of differentiating between the European and American luxury style, François Frossard states that some parts of the US are still lacking a little bit of fashion, but in Miami everyone may acknowledge its better view. “In the US we have a broader scale of supply and product than we have in Europe” he states. However, “the European style is simple and has a natural flavor” and in Europe “we have much easier access to the Italian, Portuguese, Spanish market in terms of high-end design and fashion”.

Among the most exciting projects there are some situated in Texas and Miami. Currently, his design team is occupied on many projects, trying to develop their markets in Europe and Mexico, were he has already left his mark on the QUEEN PARIS nightclub at the Champs Elysées in Paris, the Moon Palace Cancun in Mexico, and the mighty hotel-resort LeBlanc in Cabos.

Stepping away from the work conversation, Miami Design Agenda was excited to find out more about how the designer spends his free time. Despite travelling a lot on work purposes, François visits Paris, and its luxurious southern cities of St. Tropez, Cannes and Monaco, on a regular basis.

In terms of design brands, François Frossard is completely in love with Boca do Lobo, considering them a favorite. It’s each the fact that each of Boca do Lobo’s pieces tells a special story, and stirs emotion from the first moment you lay eye on them.

Furthermore, François takes his inspirations from speaking to people, travelling and discovering villages in his beloved South of France. He believes that “inspiration has to come naturally and it cannot be false”, and considers it as something that really comes and goes. The Forge restaurant, in Miami, which he designed four year ago, is one of his favourite dining spots.
