Jean-Michel Frank (1895-1941)

Designer

Jean-Michel Frank (1895-1941) is a legendary French designer who has shaped timeless design in the 20th century. With a quest for simplicity that transcends forms and spaces, and an inimitable style termed ""poor luxury,"" he invented spaces akin to meditation and dreams. Exploring the idea of ""furnishing by unfurnishing,"" Frank broke conventions and subtly merged radical simplicity with sophisticated materials. Perhaps it's this fusion of lightness and rigor, of dreams and minimalism that made him so mythical, quickly garnering attention from collectors like Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, and the Rockefellers. His life, a blend of paradoxes and elegance, is an almost novel that unfolded between the two world wars, marked by friendships with luminaries like Alberto Giacometti, Christian Bérard, and Salvador Dalí. Today, Galerie Maxime Flatry proudly defends Jean-Michel Frank's legacy—an all-time favorite.
