It has come to my knowledge today that interior designer Sybille de Margerie copied the design of an awarded furniture piece for the luxurious interior project of Hotel de Paris Saint Tropez, which was projected by the French group SM Design.

As a blogger who is inspired by design and all things related to creativity, I could not let this shameful event pass by without taking this opportunity to defend all the artists and brands in the world who dedicate their lives making the world a better place with their unique works, which deserve all the respect we can give.

It’s never too much to stress out the importance of copyright, which gives the holders of intellectual creations in the literary, scientific and artistic domain the exclusive right to dispose of their work and use it, or allow their use by third parties, in whole or in part.

I declare myself against copies and defend the authenticity of original works by respecting them and their authors.

Therefore, I completely disapprove the actions of group SM Design and Interior Designer Sybille de Margerie who signs the interior design project Hotel de Paris Saint Tropez.

Please help defending authors and be against the violation of copyright. Copies have absolutely no value whatsoever.
