French / English €29 Indisponible

In post-war Europe, that was free but reduced to rubble, architects and decorators united to build a better world. In their reconstructed buildings, they sought to establish modern comforts and new living spaces, such as the living/dining room, kitchenette, and children's room. These rooms were furnished in an innovative, sober, and practical style, marking a drastic change from the elitism of Art Deco that paved the way for a new and affluent society.

With the Perret Show Flat in Le Havre at its foundation, this work depicts the birth of daily life as we know it as seen through the eyes of the post-war era's most emblematic photographers (Doisneau, Parry), architects (Perret, Lods), and interior decorators (Gabriel, Gascoin).
