The Brilliance of Designer Jean Prouvé

"There is no difference between constructing a piece of furniture and constructing a building," Prouvé once famously said. Equally admired for his work in furniture, metalwork and architecture, Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) is one of the most influential designers of the early modern design movement. His innovative chairs, desks, lamps and shelves have long been collector's items.
