French Design

Creativity as Tradition

By Alain Lardet, Anne Bony.

A tribute to excellence in the know-how of leading French firms. This book is a tribute to the excellence of twenty-five leading French firms, such as Baccarat, Christofle, Hermès, and S.T. Dupont, which have succeeded in reinventing themselves in contact with designers. Their history is traced out thanks to some major research in archives, and also through the words of the protagonists of this story. This photographic album of the objects features, for each firm, an innovative object compared with one or more characteristic pieces from the same firm’s heritage. Transmission, Know-How and French Design will be a must for graphic and fashion designers, marketing professionals, collectors and students.


Alain Lardet is president of the Designer’s Days association, which organized the Parisian design week of the same name. An expert in design, Anne Bony has written numerous books on the subject. She has also contributed to many books on fashion, including the Dictionnaire International de la Mode.
