The Aragon coffee table by Jean-Michel Frank stands next to the Elysée lounge by Pierre Paulin. Alongside these works, many prolific designers are also featured, this includes Marcel Coard, Charlotte Perriand, Armand-Albert Rateau, Alberto Giacometti, Jean Prouvé, Carlo Mollino, Ado Chale, François-Xavier Lalanne, Georges Jouve or Martin Szekely and Bruno Romeda who will be honored with 17 lots.
