Andree Putman

  1. 1. Be steady and well-ordered in your life, so that your work can be fierce and original . - Flaubert Andrée Putman 1925-

  3. 3. ÉCART Re-editions from: Félix Aublet Pierre Chareau Michel Dufet MARIANO FORTUNY Jean-Michel Frank & Adolphe Chanaux Robert Mallet-Stevens 1930 Michel Dufet Chair
  4. 4. BIOGRAPHY 1978 - present 1984 Designs the Morgans Hotel in Manhattan. 1985 Designs first of several mannequins for Pucci. 1993 Designs the Concorde for AirFrance. 1997 Leaves Écart to found new firm in her own name.
  5. 5. LE STYLE PUTMAN In my opinion, EMPTINESS is, in a way, the reverse of emptiness. It makes me picture a blank page: everything is possible. Creation is born out of it and sustained by it.
  6. 6. LE STYLE PUTMAN GEOMETRY , the concealed structure of nature, is the result of the lucid reading of a space. RHYTHM is the dimension of time that interrupts the orderliness… It is dynamic and energizing.
  7. 7. LE STYLE PUTMAN LIGHTING is the element which arouses sheer fascination.
  8. 8. LE STYLE PUTMAN Materials have an OPPOSITE . Bizarre incompatibility creates the most thought-provoking effect. One must be unrestricted by automatic attitudes.
  9. 9. LE STYLE PUTMAN The closest attention should always be paid to the BATHROOM and the KITCHEN , the seat of water and fire where the ancient and laughable drama of human life is played out. It is vital to our spiritual ease that these rooms have a high level of physical comfort.
