Working across furniture, lighting, and interior decor, French designer Jean Royère is known for his pioneering work with organic shapes and rare materials. Throughout his career, Royère focused primarily on creating unique and limited edition pieces, instead of venturing into the mass production techniques of his modernist peers. Therefore, surviving examples of his work are particularly prized. His Tour Eiffel series encompasses lamps, chairs, standing screens, and tables. The October 9th auction includes Royère’s Tour Eiffel chandelier, marking a rare opportunity to acquire a luxurious interpretation of the iconic Parisian landmark.
