Djo-Bourgeois (Edouard-Joseph Bourgeois), responsible for the interiors of the pavilion, studied architecture with Robert Mallet-Stevens and subsequently specialised in interior and furniture design. He had already collaborated in previous occasions with ‘Studium-Louvre’. Other artists were involved with the decoration of the office-library: the decorative lacquered panel, upholstery, carpet and curtains were designed by Pierre Demaria, the cushions by Suzanne Roissy and the sculptures by Léon Leyritz.
