André Monpoix (1925-1976) is a French designer and interior architect. He studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratif from 1945 to 1949, with teachers such as Jacques Dumond, Maxime Old and René Gabriel. At the end of his studies, he joined the workshop of his former teacher, René Gabriel. Following the sudden death of the latter, he was hired by Jacques Dumond before finally becoming independent in 1953. From this date on, he developed a pure aesthetic vocabulary, close to that of his friend Alain Richard. However, his death in 1976 put an early end to a rich and promising career.
