(* 28. Februar 1895 in Paris; † 8. März 1941 in Manhattan) was a French furniture designer.
In 1918, Jean-Michel Frank, who worked briefly for a businessman in Paris, befriended Pierre Drieu la Rochelle and Louis Aragon.
In 1932 he opened a shop with Adolphe Chanaux on the rue du Faubourg St.-Honoré 140 in Paris.
In July 1940, he fled from the Germans first to Argentina, then to New York, as he was twice as vulnerable as a Jew and a homosexual. There he flung himself on March 8, 1941 from a window of his apartment in Manhattan. Jean Cocteau, with whom he was friends, compared his death to the "falling of a curtain between the world of light and the world of darkness".
Frank preferred the simple shapes and clean lines of the Art Deco style, which he combined with luxurious materials. Furniture according to his designs are still produced today. Frank furnished an apartment for the millionaire Rockefeller.
