French designer Marcel Gascoin (1907-1986) was one of the leading furniture designers of the post-war era. He is recognised for the vital role he played in the reconstruction of France after the Second World War, when his modular storage units and matching sets of wooden furniture, which focused on clean aesthetics and functionality, became a staple for French households.
