Jean Prouvé

Jean Prouvé was born in 1901 in Nancy and completed his training as a metal artisan in Paris. He went on to open his workshop in his native town in the early 1920s. He was one of the firsts who devoted themselves to metal prefabbrication, which made him a reference point for rationalist architects and designers, such as Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Marcel Lodsed, Eugène Beaudoin, Yona Friedman e Georges Candilis. Although being self-taught in the field of engineering and architecture, he gave a decisive contribution to post-war reconstruction in France and designed a wide range of objects, from modular building systems to chairs, imposing a style which combines beauty and materials functionality.
