Presenting a detailed study of the oeuvre of French modernist architect and designer Chareau (1883-1950), this catalogue documents with photographs, drawings, plans and individual descriptions a selection of chairs, tables, lamps and other furniture pieces; twelve designs for interiors; and eight architectural projects, including the celebrated Maison de Verre (1932), an innovative Parisian residence featuring a glass-block facade.
