Spotlight: Jean Prouvé




A figure whose work blurred the line between the mathematical and the aesthetic, French industrial designer, architect, and engineer Jean Prouvé (8 April 1901 – 23 March 1984) is perhaps best remembered for his solid yet nimble furniture designs, as well as his role in the nascent pre-fabricated housing movement. His prowess in metal fabrication inspired the Structural Expressionist movement and helped to usher in the careers of British High-Tech architects Richard Rogers and Norman Foster.

A figure whose work blurred the line between the mathematical and the aesthetic, French industrial designer, architect, and engineer Jean Prouvé (8 April 1901 ? 23 March 1984) is perhaps best remembered for his solid yet nimble furniture designs, as well as his role in the nascent pre-fabricated housing movement. His prowess in metal fabrication inspired the Structural Expressionist movement and helped to usher in the careers of British High-Tech architects Richard Rogers and Norman Foster.

Born in Paris to artist Victor Prouvé and pianist Marie Duhamel, Jean Prouvé grew up surrounded by the ideals of L?École de Nancy, the Art Nouveau school of which his father was a member. The school stressed the importance of utilizing industrial technologies in the creation of art, as well as spreading its products to the masses by treating art as an industry in itself. Embracing these values, from ages 13?16 Prouvé studied at the school of fine arts in Nancy, and subsequently was apprenticed to both a blacksmith and a metalworking shop in Paris.In 1924 at the age of 22, Prouvé opened his first studio. Working in wrought iron and steel, he fabricated lamps, chandeliers, and handrails, and designed his first furniture piece, La Chaise Inclinable. The reclining chair was the first to use the technique of flat steel tubes that Prouvé had developed in his studio, which allowed the chair to be folded and stacked. This technique was concurrent to that of bent steel tubes developed by Prouvé?s contemporary Marcel Breuer. Production of the chair continued until 1930, and during this time Prouvé produced details for various buildings throughout France, including the gates for the Verdun Memorial, and several houses designed by Robert Mallet-Stevens.
