Joseph Andre Motte


Graduating valedictorian from the Ecole des Arts Appliqués in 1948, after studying under René Gabriel and Louis Sognot, he joined Marcel Gascoin's atelier in 1952. He was a member of Groupe IV working with Charron in 1953 ad ARP from 1954 to 1957. Motte contributed to Steiner's success by designing models such as the ""770"" series, big ""flower"" armchairs with zip covers, even before the invention of Jersey. He was one of the most articulate designers of his generation, certainly one of the most innovative and some say the best...
From the mid-1950s, he was awarded the most fantastic projects of that time. He created the most emblematic designs for them and worked with Mobilier National from 1967. He began using stainless steel in the 1950s and further developed his designs with this material in the 1960s. In charge of the ENSAD conferences in 1959, he was Chairman of the SAD from 1966 to 1968.
