After many years of successful work in Russia and CIS nations, in May 2016 Irina Bokova decided to open her IB Creatis bureau in Paris. Under the direction of Bruno Charles-Gervais, the company realises international projects for designers, architects and private clients around the world — including Europe, the UAE, and the USA.
The company has two lines of work:
IB Creatis works on private projects involving the most complex technical demands, and collaborates with French artists, craftsmen and producers to build up a strong basis of partnership.
IB Creatis collaborates with craftsmen of the highest capabilities, and thus is able to bring almost any project idea to fruition. This interactive approach to creative projects means that team is able to work in such different media as metal, wood, or glass, to create exquisitely beautiful yet complex items, existing in the crossover zone between craft and artworks.

«When I'm working with French craftsmen, I'm always inspired by their continuous striving for perfection in every detail, so that they can achieve the most well-planned and high-quality result. The aim of IB Creatis and our partners is to spread the concept of 'L'art de vivre à la française' — that very special French approach to life that puts France in pole position among interior designers. IB Creatis is growing fast — yet our credo is always quality above all else, skill, know-how, and reliability»
