Footnotes

  • Alexandre Noll (French, 1890-1970) wanted "to make of wood all that could be made out of wood." The wood sculptures, furniture and household objects that he created varied in function and style, but throughout his career Noll remained consistent to his beloved material — natural wood. His love of the material was unique, especially at a time when industrial design processes and man-made resources were pioneered by the post-war generation of architects and designers. His focus on the craft was the production of wood-made pieces created by the human hand. Contrary to the prevailing trend towards mass production after World War II, he produced wooden furniture in individual production. In the 1950s, Noll finally turned to woodcarving and participated in numerous exhibitions in France, including De la Sculpture de Rodin à nos jours and Aux Arts de la table in the Pavilion de Marsan.
