La Maison de Verre
"The Maison de Verre", a rarely seen modernist masterpiece, is the most celebrated work of French architect and designer Pierre Chareau. Dominique Vellay, the granddaughter of the original client, tells here for the first time the story of her grandmother's relationship with the architect and this extraordinarily inventive house. Francois Halard has produced a series of stunning photographs that pay homage to the house and its unique architectural features, as well as its collection of bespoke period furniture. The combination of personal reminiscence and spectacular photos of the house, so seldom seen, makes this a truly rare publishing event.
