Maison de Verre

Pierre Chareau – Bernard Bijvoet – House of Dr. Jean Dalsace, Paris France, 1927-1931

La Maison de Verre (French for the house of glass) was built between 1928 and 1932 in Paris, France.
Built in the first modern style of architecture, the design of the house has emphasized three primary traits: the honesty of materials, the variable transparency of shapes and the juxtaposition of "industrial" materials and furnishings with a more traditional style of home decor. The primary materials used were steel, glass and glass blocks.
Some of the noteworthy "industrial" elements included rubberized floor tiles, bare steel beams, perforated sheets, heavy industrial lamps and mechanical devices.
The project is a collaboration between Pierre Chareau (furniture and interior designer), Bernard Bijvoet (Dutch architect who worked in Paris since 1927) and Louis Dalbet (metalworker craftsman).
