Matrix Showcases: Jean Michel Frank

This couch is portrayed in the living-room of Georges Born’s apartment in Buenos Aires, one of Frank’s most important projects of interior decoration.

This armchair instead is the derivation of a model designed by Frank for Madame Cerf’s apartment. Although armchairs with arched back were widespread in the 1930s Frank’s version stands out for the arch laid in the centre of the armrest and not embracing the whole rear of the chair, and for the shape of the armrests, neither inclined nor tapered.

The armchair is here portrayed with the beautiful mirror stand by Lilly Reich,  the German Designer who partnered with Mies Van Der Rohe in many projects of furniture design. 
The three products showcased are part of the collection Codici by Matrix International.
