Its vision of maintaining the origins and structures of the Maison Jean-François Rey embracing the core contents of design and quality driven approach as well as the international experience they represent, have been convincing Joëlle and Jean-François also on a personal level.

Joëlle and Jean-François Rey will continue to manage and support the design team, which is essential on the way to prepare the company for future challenges maintaining the iconic concept of design and colors and assuring continuity to the Maison Jean-François Rey
