1907 - 1986

Marcel GASCOIN

Driven by his belief in the importance of functionality, throughout his career he offered mass-produced, minimalist furniture in wood, as well as furnishings composed of easy-to-integrate elements. The Stuhl chair (1950), Marguerite table (1950) and Trèfle stool (1950) are among the designer's best-known pieces. Biography Marcel Gascoin was born in France in 1907. He trained as a cabinetmaker in Le Havre, then studied architecture at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. In 1930, on the recommendation of Robert Mallet-Stevens, he joined the Union des Artistes Modernes (UAM). In 1934, he participated in the creation of a steel boat cabin at Ateliers Jean Prouvé. During the war, Gascoin began research into the rational approach. His modular furniture quickly proved a great success, and he founded ARHEC (Aménagement rationnel de l'habitation et des collectivités). His talent for creating modern pieces and his desire to make them accessible to as many people as possible made him a household name.
