French origins

This movement was active between 1928 and 1958, afterward it merged into the International Modern Movement and had among its founders prominent artists such as Eileen Gray, Charlotte Perriand, Jacques Adnet – whose table lamp QUADRO designed in 1929 was produced by LCI – and Pierre Chareau to whom the lamp MCP was dedicated (Merci Pierre Chareau) which in 1979 had a huge commercial success and became part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine
