Roger Tallon; Design in Motion at the Museum of Decorative Arts
The legacy of Roger Tallon, one of the great trailblazers of French industrial design, has so shaped our everyday life that we tend to forget that his name is attached to such creations as the Corail passenger rail car, the TGV Duplex high-speed train, the Montmartre funicular, and the magazine Art Press. Then there are his other iconic designs, including the Module M 400 spiral staircase, the 3T table service and the Téléavia P111 portable television. The current exhibition, a major retrospective, covers all aspects of the personality of Roger Tallon and his work via the archives which he donated to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs before his death in 2011. During a 60 year career, he pioneered a radically new approach to design that was rooted in the industrial world, but also very open to all fields of contemporary creativity. All of which will be presented during this exhibition through the realised objects, drawings and models of his projects.
