Figoni et Falaschi Carrossiers
Born in Italy, Giuseppe Figoni had emigrated to a suburb of Paris by the time he was 14 and became an apprentice wagon builder. After fighting in The Great War Figoni established a body repair business, and branched into building complete bodies by 1925. Ovidio Falaschi joined Figoni in 1935 to add business skills to the artistry of Figoni. Figoni et Falaschi caused a sensation at several car shows with unique body styles which copied shapes from aircraft, and used tear drop shapes too. Coachwork was famously provided for Delage, Delahaye and Talbot-Lago amongst others. After the Second World War, even though bespoke coachbuilding was generally out of favour, Figoni et Falaschi demand was strong and the business continued under son Claude Figoni. The Carrossier carried on until the end of the 1950s.
