Andrée Putman, born in 1925 as Andrée Christine Aynard, left today at 87 years old a world she started conquering late, at 53 years after a difficult divorce with the art collector and editor Jacques Putman.

Well known for her minimalist style and love for the 30’s design, she is known for giving a second breath to Robert Mallet-Stevens school-chair or Eileen Gray’s design objects, designing interiors of Morgans Hotel in New York, Le Saint James Club in Paris, Köln’s Im Wasserturm Hotel, The Putman hotel in Hong Kong, Gildo Pastor Center in Monaco, the Concorde plane or luxury boutiques such as Balenciaga, Yves Saint Laurent, Azzedine Alaïa, Guerlain or Karl Lagerfeld.
