Roger Tallon (1929 – 2011)
The French product designer Roger Tallon studied engineering from 1944 to 1950. He then worked at Jacques Viénot and Jean Parthenay’s studio, which he later took over. 1957 Tallon taught at the arts and crafts school in Paris. The product designer created hundreds of objects, among others for Peugeot, Kodak, Air France, General Motors and SNCF. His designs for the watchmaker LIP are classics today.
The French watchmaker LIP was founded 1867 by Emmanuel Lipmann (1844-1913). After his death, the company continued successfully and experimented with several techniques and materials. Soon, LIP achieved a yearly production of up to 500.000 watches, including the LIP Electronic with the movement R.27. In 1974, Claude Neuschwader took over LIP’s management and worked with various designers, among others with Roger Tallon, Marc Held and Jean Dinh Van. Since 1975 the Mach 2000 watches became avant-garde style icons.
