portrait of Pierre Chareau

Pierre Chareau

Co-founder of the “Union des Artistes Modernes“ in 1929, architect and furniture designer, Pierre Chareau believed in the creation of a perfect harmony between materials, light and volume. His masterful creations were described by one of his contemporaries as being a mixture of “charm and power harmony and dissonance“. “La Maison de Verre“, completed in 1931, is an illustration of Chareau’s search for an harmonious and fonctional urban environment. He looked to “free man as much as possible from his slavehood to materialism and its obsolete conventions“.
