Designer name: Lebovici, Yonel
  1937 - 1998
Yonel Lebovici, or Lebo as he was called by friends and family, was born in 1937 to Narcisse, a Romanian writer and Louise, his Breton-born mother. As a young boy, his enthusiasm and delight for the arts including sculpting, painting and drawing was revealed as well as his abiding passion for collecting. After receiving his baccalaureate in 1953 and a degree in aeronautics in 1955, he had a short stint at the aeronautics company SNCASE where he started his long and fruitful love of the light metal aluminum. This was followed with work as a film extra test pilot and a career enhancing job as a be-bop dancer in Saint Germain des Prés; not the typical career path of a classically trained engineer. But it did illustrate very clearly Lebo’s joyful approach to life. With Lebovici’s early death at the age of 60 in 1998, we lost a great eye onto the world.
