  • Catalogue Essay

    “In 1929 Roger Gompel commissioned Robert Mallet-Stevens to design the committee room and headquarters of his textile import-export company Paris-France, located at 137 Boulevard Voltaire. Along with Gompel’s private residence on Boulevard Suchet, this new commission established the association between Mallet-Stevens the architect and the lighting engineer André Salomon, founder of the company Perfécla, who also happened to be Gompel’s brother-in-law.”
    Delphine Jacob in Robert Mallet-Stevens, L’OEuvre complète, Paris, 2005, p. 148(translated from the French)
