Alex Heminway, International Head of Design at Christie says: “It is an absolute joy to offer this jewel of an in-depth collection on behalf of the private sellers who, with great foreknowledge, assembled these works in the 1990s when the great French designers represented Royère, Vautrin. , Jouve were at the beginning of the throes of rediscovery through collectible design ?? market, itself a nascent idea, as it turned its attention to mid-century French. ??
Completely self-taught, Royère used bright colors and geometric shapes in a style that appears par excellence French with a clear influence of Italian and Scandinavian designs. His work has always had global appeal as he sought inspiration abroad and promoted his designs in the Middle East, North Africa and South America, in addition to his presence in France and through Europe. As a result, Royère had a great impact on the post-war design culture of these regions.
Removed from their original homes, Royère’s works allow for a fluid interpretation outside of their bespoke origins, resting comfortably in minimalist and richly layered interiors of the present. As they find new homes, Royère’s universal designs are geared towards the timeless, ?? wrote Michael Jefferson, Christie’s Senior International Specialist, Design.
Royère experimented with a wide range of materials and took a non-traditional approach to modern design, creating a distinct style that combines elegance, playfulness and comfort. His career lasted until the early 1970s and today his work is as respected and popular as his contemporaries brought together by celebrities, royalty and design aficionados.
