About the artist:
Gilbert Poillerat (1902 – 1988) was a French Designer and metalworker.
Between 1921 and 1927, he worked as a designer and creator of wrought-iron furniture and furnishings for metalworker Edgar Brandt on Paris’s Rue Marat.
In 1927, he started working for Baudet, Donon et Roussel, a carpentry and metal construction workshop. He was in charge of the new wrought iron section. Grillework, tables, chairs, consoles, screens, lighting, and firedogs were all designed and manufactured by him. Poillerat’s metalwork was rendered in characteristic winding calligraphic forms in various media ranging from jewellery to clothing.He established his workshop and became a professor at the Ecole Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in 1946. After abandoning furniture and furnishings, he turned to monumental wrought-iron work, completing commissions for public and governmental buildings, as well as the Palais de l’Elysée.
In 1957, he designed the ironwork on the facade of Strasbourg’s new synagogue. He frequently collaborated with Jacques Adnet.
