    Eugene Schoen

    Schoen went to Vienna in the early 1900s to study architecture with Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffmann and visited the 1925 Paris Exposition des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. His furniture designs reflect the influence of the French avant-garde style that predominated at the 1925 fair, but his inventive use of new materials such as Fabrikoid, Flexwood, and Monel in combination with more luxurious materials of the Art Deco period make the objects uniquely his own.
