Jean Dunand was a French lacquer, sculptor and interior designer of the Art Deco period. He appropriated in 1912 the secret lacquer techniques of Asia from the Japanese master lacquer artist Seizo Sugarawa whom Eileen Gray had studied under. Inspired by his sculpting work, Jean Dunand combined the traditional methods of lacquer with geometric patterns. In addition, he used ivory, brown or pale green pigments and materials such as eggshell or gold and silver inlays.
