Figure singulière d'une époque riche en révolutions esthétiques, Paul Dupré-Lafon symbolise un art de vivre où formes et matériaux expriment harmonie et sensibilité. A la jonction entre Art Déco et Mouvement Moderne, Paul Dupré-Lafon fut architecte, décorateur, et créateur de meubles. Il réalisa en un demi-siècle près de cinquante décorations pour des fidèles qui se disputaient son génie. Artiste secret, il ne fut d'aucun salon ni d'aucune exposition. Ses créations sont des pièces uniques aujourd'hui très convoitées sur le marché de l'art. Résolument moderne, son œuvre peut servir de référence à l'architecture d'intérieur contemporaine.

Text in French by Thierry Couvrat Desvergnes; 207 pages, color and black and white illustrations
Paul Dupré-Lafon was one of the most influential French architects and decorators in the first half of the 20th century. Upon the completion of his studies at the École des Beaux Artes in Marseilles, he moved to Paris and immersed himself in the cultivation of the Art Deco aesthetic that had been growing rapidly in its popularity throughout the 1920s. His first major project was a private hotel in Paris, completed in 1929, coinciding with the same year that he began his famous work with the Hermés fashion house. His legacy continued to flourish for its modernism, quality, innovation, and elegance for nearly 30 more years until his retirement. This exquisitely printed monograph presents many of his famous public and private commissions from inception to fruition in a manner that appears as urbane and debonair as it did eighty years ago.
