Shagreen is the untanned skin from shark or stingray. It displays an unusually rough and granular surface. For this reason, skilled craftsmen use shagreen to cover items such as luxury luggage, toilet cases, rare books as well as larger pieces of furniture.

Jean-Michel Frank was a French interior designer. Icon of the Art Deco style, Frank was the most influential designer of the 1930s. He collaborated with artists or architects such as Christian Berard, Alberto and Diego Giacometti or Emilio Terry. Jean-Michel Frank is henceforth recognized today by leading designers as one of the greatest sources of inspiration to many present-day designs.
