Jean-Michel Frank
(1895 – 1941)

Esthete and designer, Jean-Michel Frank settled his reputation as a great Parisian interior decorator by creating a gentlemen room for the Viscount of Noailles in 1923 in Paris. Reinterpreting the classic esthetic, he favored delicate lines and raw materials in the 1920s. His clientele rapidly adopted his furniture stripped of any ornamentation and of perfect simplicity. From 1930, Jean-Michel Frank collaborated with great artists and architects such as Alberto Giacometti, Paul Rodocanachi, Jean Hugo, Emilio Terry and Christian Bérard.
