Today the oeuvre of French architect and designer Jean Prouvé is considered essential to the history of 20th-century design. Prouvé’s furniture designs were determined by the interior spaces that the pieces would inhabit, developed in tandem with the era’s Modernist conceptions of the art of living and harmonious habitats.
This comprehensive, exquisitely produced volume—orchestrated by Galerie Patrick Seguin—is a new and enriched version of the monograph originally published in 2007. It adds to the existing scholarship, most of which focused on Prouvé’s architecture. It includes a collection of interviews with collectors and design professionals, a detailed biography of Prouvé penned by his daughter Catherine Prouvé, and essays by design historian Raymond Guidot and architecture historian Catherine Coley.
