Roger Tallon (1929-2011) is a key figure in French design and has worked in nearly all facets of the design industry : early in his career he focused primarily on domestic design; he then turned to aesthetic and institutional concerns; and later his practice became strictly industrial. His diverse accomplishments include his Téléavia portable television set, Lip watches, designs for the first high-speed train, Mexico’s subway system, and the introduction of design teaching into specialist schools in France.

This book includes a critical essay on Tallon’s impact on international design, an interview, and many reproductions of his work.

Chloé Braunstein is the artistic director of Mouvements Moderne gallery and author of design-oriented books.
Gilles de Bure (1940-2013) was a French journalist at Journal des Arts.
