Jean Michel Frank
1895 - 1941

Jean-Michel Frank was responsible for completely re-inventing the dictionary of decorative arts between 1932 and 1940. He worked in Paris, New York and South America and was inspired by Neoclassicism and the abstraction of primitive art. He thereby graced the 1930’s period with an original and highly elegant style which soon earned him a wealthy and elitist clientele. His name becoming a true reference point for 20th century furniture collectors. The decorative principles that he developed forming the basis for a minimalist style which is still popular today and continues to inspire modern designers.
