Indisputably the grande dame of modern design, Andrée Putman (1925-2013) burst onto the scene twenty-five years ago with the graphic, black-and-white interiors of the Morgans Hotel in New York.

Since then Putman has gone on to redefine design for a diverse group of prestigious clients, including Karl Lagerfeld, the French Ministry of Culture, and the interior of the supersonic Concorde. Projects since 1980 range from museum interiors, a jewelry line for Christofle, private residences for global trendsetters, and a film set for Peter Greenaway. Putman is also credited for the revival of once-forgotten early modernist designers, such as Eileen Gray, Robert Mallet-Stevens, and Jean-Michel Frank, whose designs she put back into production and used in her famous interiors.

The first comprehensive monograph on Putman’s essential designs in 20 years will be an indispensable road map of style and elegance to all lovers of modern design.
