    Straw wicker woven rush chair midcentury Jean Michel Frank style, 1930, France. Woven chair that shows fine workmanship. Beautifully woven with patina throughout. Sycomore Source: Jaques de Vos , Inte´rieur , Paris 1990 . Measures: 81 cm deep 57 cm high 53 cm wide Jean-Michel Frank (28 February 1895–3 August 1941) was a French interior designer known for Minimalist interiors decorated with plain-lined but sumptuous furniture made of luxury materials, such as shagreen, mica, and intricate straw marquetry. Jean-Michel Frank was born in Paris, a son of Le´on Frank, a banker, and his wife and cousin, the former Nanette Frank. From 1904, he attended the Lyce´e Janson de Sailly in Paris. He began law school in 1911, but in 1915, he was hit by the double blow of the death of his two elder brothers, Oscar and Georges, on the front lines of World War I and that of his father who committed suicide. In 1928, he lost his mother who had been in a Swiss asylum for several years. From 1920-1925 he traveled and visited the world. In Venice he met the cosmopolitan society that gathered around Stravinsky and Diaghilev. Eugenia Erra´zuriz revealed to him the beauty of 18th century styles and her own modern, minimalist esthetic, and he became her disciple, circa 1927. He then got in contact with a Parisian decorator called Adolphe Chanaux to do his apartment in the Rue de Verneuil...
