ERIC BAGGE 

(1890 – 1978)

An architect as well as an interior designer, Eric Bagge designed furniture, wallpaper, fabrics, accessories, jewelry and silver. His furniture was produced in precious woods in geometric motifs inspired by Cubist art. He was one of a group of designers of the period who were committed to the transformation of the appearance of French furniture and were willing to abandon Historicism in order to explore other visual stimuli. 

Bagge participated in the salons of Societe des Artistes Francais from its beginning, and in events of the Salon dʼAutomne from 1919, salons of Societe des Artistes Decorateurs, and salons of Union Central des Arts Decoratifs. For the 1925 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes he designed the Hall of Jewelry at the Grand Palais and the bedroom and bath of the French Ambassade as well as exhibitions for Les Gobelins and Beauvais. A member of the Groupe des Architectes Modernes and of the Societe dʼEncouragement a lʼArt et LʼIndustrie, he designed furniture for La Maitrise, Saddier Freres, Mercier Freres, and Dennery. His grand suite for the 1926 oceanliner Ile-de-France was widely published. In 1929 he became artistic director of the modern furniture store, Palais du Marbre and in 1930 he opened his own shop.
