Patrick Seguin, member of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts, is a prominent figure in the world of 20th Century Design.
Installed in a magnificent gallery of 300 m2 in Paris’ Bastille neighborhood since 1989, Patrick Seguin has, thanks to a passionate enthusiasm and an energetic determination, defended internationally the talent of designers characteristic of France’s post-World-War II era. The designers in the gallery’s repertoire include Charlotte Perriand, Jean Prouvé, Pierre Jeanneret, Jean Royère, Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, Georges Jouve and Alexandre Noll.With a reputation based on seriousness and professionalism, it is not surprising that renowned museums such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil-am-Rhein, the Kunstverein in Ludwigsburg, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Nancy, to name a few, have solicited the collaboration of Patrick Seguin for the realization of exhibitions.
The quality of the works selected by Patrick Seguin, as well as his impeccable instinct for their scenography, has given fruit to ground breaking exhibitions such as the “Jean Prouvé” Retrospective at the Sonnabend Gallery in New York in 2003, the “Charlotte Perriand—Jean Prouvé” exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles in 2004, the “Jean Prouvé” exhibition in Seoul and in Tokyo in 2005, and an exhibition dedicated to the furniture of Pierre Jeanneret for the city of Chandigarh in India at the Sonnabend Gallery in New York in Feburary 2006.
It is the following criteria that justifies the role of the Galerie Patrick Seguin as representative of the designs of France’s 1950’s at the prestigious Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris, at the Biennale des Antiquaires in Monaco, and at Design Miami and Design Miami Basel.
Today the work of Charlotte Perriand, Jean Prouvé, Pierre Jeanneret, Jean Royère, Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, Georges Jouve and Alexandre Noll is considered to be an essential component of the history of 20th Century Design.
