Jean-Michel Frank

"You can furnish a room very luxuriously by unfurnishing it" is probably one of Frank’s most famous quotes, highlighting his taste for minimalism: some of his most iconic interiors are indeed marked by sparingly arranged furniture and creamy whites all around. This hallmark of non-colors was most emphasized by the iconic salon that Frank decorated for Marie-Laure and Charles de Noailles's hôtel particulier in Paris. Panels of parchment on the walls, compact white armchairs, straw-marquetry side tables, lamps made of quartz, and stunning bronze doors: the room immortalized by Man Ray’s black-and-white photographs has become the paradigm of sophistication. 

In the late 1920s, Jean-Michel Frank partners with cabinetmaker Adolphe Chanaux and starts creating furniture and lighting fixtures using uncommon materials such as gypsum, terracotta, mica, graphite, shagreen, straw or parchment. Together they share an eye for sober elegance and pure volumes. They are inspired by history, but Frank makes a point in creating furniture that “lives with its time”.
