It fascinates with its modernism and remains today a constant inspiration for architects all over the world. The Maison de Verre, inaugurated in 1932, was the major work of the French architect Pierre Chareau. Yet, hidden away in a courtyard in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, this architectural legend is today unknown to the public. On October 7, Christie’s will hold an exceptional sale of the collections assembled by the owners of the house, Annie Bernheim-Dalsace and Jean Dalsace. This unique event will also present the furniture designed by the architect and will be an opportunity to highlight his creative genius once again.
