Jean-Michel Frank 'The Strange and Subtle Luxury of the Parisian Haute-Monde in the Art Deco Period' by Pierre-Emmanuel Martin-Vivier 1st Edition published by Rizzoli with funding from Hermès printed in Italy 2008.
Jean-Michel Frank was perhaps the most influential Parisian designer and decorator of the 1930s and 1940s, inspiring such varied talents as Andree Putman and Bonetti and Garouse. Frank established his reputation and signature look with the design of the Paris apartment of the Vicomte Charles de Noailles. Frank’s blocky, rectangular club chairs and sofas have been endlessly copied and produced by many admirers. He is credited for the design of the modern Parsons table, a stark form that Frank embellished with the most luxurious finish. Admiringly described by the French "le style Frank," his look continues to exert its influence through the powerful combination of the simplest forms and the most exquisite materials to produce objects that are truly noble and utterly modern.
