Shelf Pierre Cruege

Graduated from Bordeaux's Fine Arts School and the École des Arts Décoratifs, Pierre Cruege started to work in René Prou's workshop and took part in the development of the World Exhibition's stands in 1937. After the war, he purchased MD furniture’s' industrial carpentry and revitalized it. At the same time, he drew pieces of furniture that he presented at the Decorators Fair of 1949, with his firm FORME. This exhibition will be a great success for him thanks to, among others, his "Partroy" nest of tables. This shelf testifies of Pierre Cruege's will to combine functionalism's rigor and decorator's fantasy: it is part of an almost organic collection, in break with codes of that period.
