Antoine Philippon (1930-1995) was trained at the Boulle School; Jacqueline Lecoq (1932), at the ENSAD. They met in 1955 in the design office of Marcel Gascoin, where most of the important creators of this generation passed, from Pierre Guariche to Pierre Paulin. In 1956, they decided to work together, creating the design office that bears their names. Their collaboration, exceptional by its duration, will not end until the disappearance of Antoine Philippon in 1995. Throughout their career, they present their creations at the Salon des Arts ménagers and at the Salon des artistes décorateurs (qu 'Antoine Philippon presided from 1970-1972). They take part in the universal exhibitions in Brussels (1958) and Montreal (1967) and receive numerous orders from Mobilier national. Several prestigious awards have been given to them, including the René Gabriel Prize in 1961. At the Brussels exhibition, they received a Grand Prix for their Room for a young man, a landmark ensemble.
