Jacques Hitier, Modernité industrielle

First book fully dedicated to the designer Jacques Hitier, it walks readers through his work, inspirations, achievements and role in the discipline of design

With the key collective effort of the Piqpoq Edition & the author Pierre Gencey, the first monography about this industrial designer was released in January 2013 after a few years of hard work in close collaboration with Jacques Hitier’s family.

This book gives a unique angle on the Reconstruction style and the 50s style, taking readers into the design History from the 1940s to 1980s, through Jacques Hitier’s achievements, artwork and engagement.

The Preface is written by Patrick Favardin
