The return of truly refined minimalist luxury, otherwise known as the vernacular of Jean-Michel Frank.
From Studio Annetta:
"The decades old relationship between the über luxury house and the before-his-time designer is about to be resurrected. Hermès has announced they plan to re-issue eight of JMF's classic designs. The launch of these pieces coincide with the opening of their new Paris store...and their official return to home furnishings. Word on the street is a third of the store will be dedicated to homewares. So, what get's me more excited than that? The possible re-edition of pieces by Paul Dupré-Lafon and Jacques Adnet of course..."
The 1st photo is of an interior he did for Marie-Laure de Noailles, "with parchment walls, straw marquetry inlay, bleached leather upholstery, perfect proportion, clean lines, super luxe materials". (via a hawk from a handsaw)
The 2nd photo is from a great article on JMF's life and legacy in Argentina here.
