ABRAHAM-ROL Portrait

Janine Abraham & Dirk Jan Rol

Graduating valedictorian in 1952 from Camondo Art School, Janine studied there under René Jean Caillette and Maxime Old and met Pierre Paulin, who she followed to Meubles TV. Dirk Jan Rol studied cabinet-making initially in Holland and then at ENSAD (with, among others, Paul Dupré Lafon). They met in 1955 at Jacques Dumond’s atelier, where they worked together for a short time. The couple quickly designed a range of rattan furniture produced by Rougier. They also worked in interior design and opened their own agency in 1957; they designed a number of boutiques for Yves Rocher and also stands for Les Huchers Minvielle. Abraham and Rol then turned to architecture, creating beautiful private homes and a bare concrete building in Meudon.
