The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) will present this year's Trophée des Arts, an award that honors artists who exemplify French-American friendship and cultural exchange, to AD100 French interior designer Jacques Grange. He will be awarded at The Plaza Hotel in New York City on Friday, Dec. 5.

Since the award's founding in 1992, the Trophée des Arts has been given to artists and cultural icons like Lauren Bacall, Alain Ducasse, Isabelle Huppert, Marc Jacobs, James Ivory, Quincy Jones, Angélique Kidjo, Christian Lacroix, Louis Malle, Philippe de Montebello, Charlie Rose, Robert Wilson and, most recently, François Cluzet.

Jacques Grange

Known in New York for designing the interiors of the Mark Hotel, Grange is often sought after for his innate sense of style. His affinity for blending traditional and contemporary tastes has won commissions from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Princess Caroline of Hanover, and many private clients in the U.S., including Ronald Lauder.

And early in the designer's career, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé called upon him to design their château in Normandy and iconic home in Marrakech. In 2007, Grange received the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur in recognition of his craft, his creativity and his contributions.

The annual FIAF Trophée des Arts gala evening raises funds to support FIAF's educational and cultural programs and is co-chaired by Lauren Santo Domingo, Jeremy Levine and Robert G. Wilmers.
