La Maison Desny was created by René Nauny and M. Desnet in the city of Paris in 1927. Characterized by being a pioneer design studio in creating the most modern and avant-garde works of art of the time, they collaborated with the most outstanding architects of the time, such as Robert Mallet-Stevens, Jean-Michel Frank, among others.
After 5 successful years, the Desny studio closed its doors after the untimely death of M. Desnet in 1933.
