Chris Lebeau

Chris Lebeau [1878 – 1945] designed table linen, which was produced by the linen mill  E.J.F. van Dissel & Zonen in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. This factory was well known because of its high quality damask – fabric with woven patterns – it produced. Lebeaus designs were famous and sold all over the world. He drew strictly stylized dessins of nature, based on the Art Nouveau style, which showed a  great contrast with the past. ‘Fish’, one of his later designs, shows a less strict and more organic way of designing, that however still fitted the Art Nouveau style. His working method was unique: he made a different dessin for the tablecloth, napkin and doily by combining the core design differently for every product.
