Publisher Comments:

The inspirational vision of Jean Prouvé
“One should not sketch out utopian projects, because evolution can only result from practical experience.”

—Jean Prouvé

French architect and designer Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) was one of the most important constructors of the 20th century. Prouvés design innovations included cleverly-shaped metal parts for building prefabricated structures; he designed buildings and furniture that could be produced with economy of labor and material and efficiency in use, while maintaining high technical standards and quality materials. His simple and elegant style, while born from the desire for inexpensive production, has become an imitable aesthetic and has earned him a position as one of the centurys most influential designers.

This introduction to Prouvés work gives a profound insight into the variety of his œuvre and the progressiveness of his inspirational vision.
