Laffanour Galerie Downtown @ Design Miami/ Basel 2016


When François Laffanour opened Galerie Downtown in Paris in 1982, he quickly realized the importance of the work of Le Corbusier, Prouvé, Perriand and Jeanneret. These figures were mainly rediscovered thanks to the patient work of Laffanour, whose reputation has been associated with architects’ furniture. In 2002 he acquired the archives of Galerie Steph Simon, which commercialized the work of Prouvé, Perriand, Mouille and Jouve between 1956 and 1974.

Through his sensibility François Laffanour mixes postwar design with contemporary furniture by artists such as Ron Arad who has been represented by the gallery since 2004.
