Special Nonexistent Furniture
The Jean Prouve Collection
Jean Prouvé, a pre-eminent French furniture designer and architect, spent most of his working life designing prefabricated buildings and furniture while being cognizant of the economy of labor and efficiency. His designs illustrate of a work philosophy that includes knowledge of the materials at hand, a commitment to collaboration between artists and craftsmen, an attention to evolving technical developments, and "the principle of never postponing decisions so as neither to lose the impetus nor indulge in unrealistic forecasts."
