Arte Concept Cannes:
from the beginnings till today


The company's history began about thirty years ago. The choice to work with SieMatic kitchen brand was already obvious at the time. Excellence and innovation, the core values that form the DNA of this prestigious German kitchen brand, were carried on by the new owner of the shop, Francis Parage, fifteen years later. His company, CD Concept, continued the work of his predecessor. The reputation of the luxury kitchen designer shone through to the whole Cannes area and beyond. In 2017 Gilles Leone took over the management of the store to insufflate the new energy & creativity.

Since then, the showroom wears the colours of SieMatic by Arte Concept Cannes with elegance and exemplarity. Gilles Leone has instilled in the company all the richness of his professional background and identity of top-of-the-range kitchen designer. Awarded with the Talents Trophy in 2016, he embodies the SieMatic DNA & spirit. He is the team's leading figure, eager to share his preference for the very best. His motto is: "Engage with our customers to make each new project a unique, tailor-made, unforgettable experience".

His passion for kitchens has brought him back to the trade in 2001, where he keeps developing his talents for 17 years now.
