ARMCHAIR CLUB 1930 - J.M FRANK + ADOLPHE CHANAUX

designed by Jean-Michel Frank + Adolphe Chanaux

In the 20’s two men meet and inaugurate a collaboration that launches them into the center of Parisian art life. Frank and Chanaux develop a classic expression of spaces and search for “Balance“. They turn elegant sobriety into an art : they surprise. “A room may be luxuriously appointed by unfurnishing it“. Shapes are naturally pure and materials luxuriously natural, parchment, scraped oak, sandblasted oak, shagreen,… The variety and the originality of their creations seem infinite. Frank and Chanaux decorate apartments for Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles, Nelson Rockefeller, Jean-Pierre Guerlain and Louis Aragon… The War puts an end to their collaboration.  Frank leaves Paris and goes to New-York, where, unable to bear the strain of the tragic events in Europe and his own exile, he commits suicide in 1941. After the war, Chanaux becomes the artistic counsellor of Guerlain until his death in 1965. The Frank and Chanaux creations are among the most exquisite and sought after by art collectors. Present designers worldwide find inspiration in their work to create the most beautiful contemporary furniture.
