His best-known works are the interiors of the Rothschild Bank in Paris (1970) and the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. (1975) and Brasilia. For these projects, he incorporated stainless steel desks, counters, and seating to convey the power of the institutions.
The succes of the realization of the Rotschild Bank gave him access to many prestigious projects for famous french labels such as Môet & Chandon, L'Oréal, Dior, Balmain, Dysneland Paris and BNP Paribas. He also drew table, lights, sofas and offices for the notorious Rouve shop in Paris.
Boyer also embraces elegant, curvilinear details and rounded edges, as exemplified by Dining Chair (1968), Credenza (Rothschild Bank Commission) (1969), and Desk (1970). His designs emanate the inviting comfort of objects made for people, rather than buildings. In this way, Boyer’s style shares affinities with the organic, welcoming qualities of works by designers such as Ado Chale and Marc Berthier.
