BIOGRAPHY

Michel Boyer (1935-2011) studied first at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and then at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. He then trained with the decorator André Arbus. During his career, he realized mainly headquarters but also embassies such as the French embassy in Brasilia. The interiors and furniture created by Michel Boyer are in the tradition of French classicism while offering a large place to the materials of the 1970s.
