Putting design in motion with Roger Tallon

The life of Roger Tallon, the great pioneer of French industrial design, will be celebrated at The Musée des Arts Décoratifs from 8 September until 8 January, with a major retrospective featuring works from the archives that he donated to the museum before he died…

Game changer

From the high-speed French TGV Duplex trains to the innovative and hugely popular Téléavia P111 portable television, Roger Tallon designed some of the most important objects of modern industry, many of which are commonplace in our day-to-day lives. ‘Roger Tallon, Design in Motion’ now explores the great designer’s 60-year career, comprising objects, drawings and models from his life’s archives, which he donated to The Musée des Arts Décoratifs prior to his death in 2011.
