    EVOLUTION OF 20TH CENTURY DESIGN AT CHRISTIE’S PARIS

    The evolution of 20th century design comes to the fore at a sale at Christie’s Paris on November 3. Around 300 lots from collection of Daniel Lebard, gathered with passion and erudition, will come under the hammer with an overall estimated of €13-€19 million. The core of this very private collection is the Modern Movement in the 1920’s and ’30’s to France in the 1950’s, ’60’s and ’70’s. The discovery of the work of Jean Prouvé was the foundation for future choices like Pierre Chareau, Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret and Le Corbusier. Daniel Lebard gradually added to their creations with work by ean Royère, Serge Mouille, Mathieu Matégot and Georges Jouve and opening up to the reference designers of the following decades: Pierre Paulin, Roger Tallon, Atelier A and André Borderie.

    Among Jean Prouvé’s many iconic creations are a rare example of the Trapèze
    table, whose pure design and black colouring appears as an abstraction of Prouvé’s
