Starting from 1920, he began modern-style research. His first personal works debuted at the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in 1925, where he exhibited with Pierre Chareau. From 1926, he exhibited at the Salons of Decorative Artists, Autumn and Tuileries; in 1931, at the Colonial Exhibition, he presented the office of Marshal Lyautey; at the 1937 exhibition, he participated in the Pavilion of Decorative Artists and organized the lighting at the Pavilion of Light.
