Design in France 1945-1975, Exhibition

Mobi Boom
“Design Explosion in France, 1945-1975”
September 23, 2010 to January 2, 2011
Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.

This exhibition explores the prodigious renaissance in furniture design in France from 1945 to 1975, in its creation, manufacturing and marketing.
The advent of new materials – foams, plastics, elastic meshes and Formica – prompted the emergence of new furniture catering to the needs of a comfort-conscious clientele. The contribution of new talents, including Pierre Paulin, Olivier Mourgue, André Fermigier and Roger Tallon, and the importance of the design manufacturers, retailers and publishers (Roche-Bobois, Roset and Mobilier International) are explored in depth.

To be seen.

  2. Hi Karen,

    As I saw when scrawling into your blog, you are a lover of French “flavour”.
    Nice to meet you.

    Will you come to see the expo by yourself?
    Kind Regards,
