Jean Prouvé

Trained as both an engineer and a metalsmith, Jean Prouvé brought a decidedly architectural bent to furniture design. Born in France, Prouvé opened a workshop in 1923 and subsequently embarked on collaborations with makers like Le Corbusier. Similar to the work of Le Corbusier, Jean Prouvé pieces are Modernist and simplistic, focusing on right angles and the integration of mixed materials like wood and steel. However; they also showcase an architectural lightness; a shapely elegance that is inherent of the late 20th Century’s most masterful woodworkers.
