The story behind

Jean-Michel Frank (1895 - 1941), a figurehead of the decorative arts, was the most influential designer and decorator of the 1920s and 1930s. With his "modest luxury" style –a precursor to minimalism– he stripped away any superfluous decoration in search of simplicity. His spaces invited meditation. His lines were rigorous, his forms simple, his materials natural or sophisticated.

In 1924, Jean-Michel Frank met Jean-René Guerrand, son-in-law of Emile Hermès, and commissioned him to upholster his comfortable armchairs and sofas.

Their partnership was to last the rest of the designer’s lifetime. With Jean-Michel Frank, Hermes pushed the envelope of its saddlery and harness-making expertise to upholster pieces of furniture and wall coverings.

These re-releases of those timeless minimalist pieces –identical to the originals– are crafted with exceptional expertise in tapestry and upholstery.
