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.

In 2015, they channeled 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.

Dorothée Meilichzon, the designer of the Grand Pigalle Hotel, enhanced her talent in international design between different insitutions, Strate Collège de Sèvres and the Rhode Island School of design, which gave her a richness, tangible in her work for the Experimental Group.
