Founded by Romée de Goriainoff, Pierre-Charles Cros and Olivier Bon, Experimental Group would be nothing without the unfailing friendship between its three founders. Childhood friends with contrasting and complementary personalities, the trio knows that if strength comes from unity, then it is their amicable sincerity that ensures longevity.
After eight years dedicated to hospitality, they channelled their expertise into opening Grand Pigalle Hotel, a boutique hotel that combines the comfort of an international address with the charm of the art of living in the most sought-after Parisian neighbourhood: South Pigalle.
The cosmopolitan spirit of SoPi and the Grand Pigalle Hotel is embodied with panache by its general manager, Valeriya Savchuk, a young Ukranian woman trained at École Hôtelière de Lausanne.
The founder of the Parisian design agency CHZON, Dorothée Meilichzon, is a woman of culture. Educated at Strate Collège de Sèvres and the Rhode Island School of Design, she sharpened her talent in trends in international design before founding her own studio in the summer of 2009, after having completed her design of the Prescription Cocktail Club in Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
