Jean Prouvé

(19011984)

In the realms of design, architecture, and engineering, the Frenchman Jean Prouvé numbers among the most versatile and innovative figures of the 20th century. The central aim of his work as a designer was to fulfill the complex demands of series production with minimal material resources and simple modes of construction. In the process, he achieved aesthetically convincing solutions, particularly in the area of furniture design, for which he is accorded particular recognition and significance today.

Jean Prouvé regarded himself as a "constructeur" throughout his lifetime, yet he was also a businessman and the manufacturer of his own designs. His unique oeuvre — which ranges from a letter opener to lamps, furniture, door and window hardware, façade elements, prefabricated houses and modular buildings systems — encompasses almost every type of constructible object that is suited to industrial manufacturing methods.
