The designer has two heads
For this year’s Design Parade, the historian Éléa Le Gangneux has the honour to present for the first time previously unseen works by the design couple Janine Abraham and Dirk Jan Rol. In designing the scenography for this retrospective, held at the villa Noailles, Dirk Jan Rol provides us with an opportunity to rediscover a period during which designers were responsible for inventing the lifestyle of the men and women of the twenty-first century. This exhibition is dedicated to Janine Abraham, who passed away in 2005.
Over more than thirty years, Janine Abraham and Dirk Jan Rol signed their designs with both of their names. At the same time designers, architects, and interior designers, their works were the fruit of an emulation and a complementarity that they fully embraced.
