About LAFFANOUR-Galerie Downtown

Expertise/ Twentieth-century French design with a focus on postwar, midcentury, and contemporary design

When François Laffanour opened Galerie Downtown in Paris in 1982, he quickly realised the importance of the work of Le Corbusier, Prouvé, Perriand and Jeanneret. These figures were mainly rediscovered thanks to the patient work of Laffanour, whose reputation has been associated with architects’ furniture. In 2002 he acquired the archives of Galerie Steph Simon, which commercialised the work of Prouvé, Perriand, Mouille and Jouve between 1956 and 1974. Through his sensibility François Laffanour mixes post-war design with contemporary furniture by artists such as Ron Arad who has been represented by the Gallery since 2004.
