GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN/MILLEGRAPH

Jean Prouvé: Constructive Imagination

Text by Patrick Seguin, Reiko Hayama, Nao Tamura, Tamotsu Yagi, Mitsuhiro Kanada, Juliet Kinchin.

Jean Prouvé: Constructive Imagination

Prefabricated houses, bicycles, school desks and more demonstrate the versatility and utility of Jean Prouvé’s designs

French designer and self-taught architect Jean Prouvé applied manufacturing techniques to the world of art and design, while also maintaining a social consciousness that informed his commissions. His commitment to “logic, balance and purity” led him to create standardized, affordable furniture and portable, packable houses: most notably the Maison Tropicale for use in France’s African colonies. Despite the overtly industrial aspects of his oeuvre, Prouvé’s work is admired and collected the world over for its graceful yet utilitarian simplicity. Constructive Imagination unites over 100 pieces of Prouve’s emblematic furniture and architectural works, bolstered by sketches and other archival material. The glossy bilingual volume includes five unpublished essays on Prouvé, including one by former Museum of Modern Art, New York curator Juliet Kinchin.
Jean Prouvé was born in Paris in 1901. He opened his workshop in Nancy in 1923 and began producing furniture the following year, to immediate success. Prouvé is best known for his innovative applications of new materials, with which he created extremely influential buildings and furniture—including several gas stations for Shell and Mobile. Working well past retirement, he died in Nancy in 1984.
