Founded in 1922 by Andre Domin and Marcel Genevriere, this design house left its mark on furniture that was undeniably influenced by Cubism but not devoid of elegance. Some of its hallmarks include sharp edges, massive and very geometric shapes, low feet and pedestals, but also graceful, often discreet, curves.
Since the 1922 autumn salon of Artists and Decorators, Dominique ranked first among the avant-garde with furniture and seats in geometric shapes, often evoking the facets of a prism.
In 1933, Dominique began a collaboration with the General Transatlantic Company and worked with several cruise ships, most notably the Normandy, where one of the four luxury apartments was entrusted to them to decorate.
At the end of the 1930s, Dominique’s production, while retaining a certain rigor of line, marked a return toward a more ornamental style.
