Camille Gauthier was a cabinet-maker born in Norroy-les-Pont-à-Mousson 1870. Gauthier attended the Nancy School of Fine Arts, and after completing his education at the Paris Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in 1891 he worked for Louis Majorelle as a decorator from 1894-1900. Many of Gauthiers pieces were shown at the 1900 Paris World Fair. The following year, he left Majorelle’s company and partnered with tapestry-maker Paul Poinsignon to create the Gauthier-Poinsignon Company. Clearly influenced by Majorelle’s Art Nouveau style in their early works, the Gauthier-Poinsignon company differed from Majorelle’s in producing technical and customized pieces for clients. As they continued to develop, their gorgeous modern Art Deco designs became even more popular than several famous competing designers. Their flourishing popularity stemmed from their customized production, making them more available to a wider range of customers, eventually overtaking large names such as Majorelle and Gallé. In addition to his practice, Camille Gauthier was a member of the Ecole de Nancy Board of Management since 1901.
The contemporary design of this desk set could work in any large important executive office with style.
