Jean Prouvé: oeuvre complète
Jean Prouve (1901-1984) was one of the most renowned design engineers of the 20th century. This volume, the second in Birkhauser's 4-volume edition of Prouve's Complete Works, covers the period between 1934 and 1944, including such significant works as the "semi-metal" Chair no. 4 and its variations, which went into serial production from 1935 onwards, office furniture for the Parisian Electricity Supply Works and seating for the lecture hall of the Ecole des sciences politiques in Paris. In 1934 Prouve's workshop commenced production of entirely pre-fabricated sheet metal buildings such as the Flying Club at Buc. One of the triumphs of this period is the Maison du Peuple communal hall in Clichy, an outstanding monument of functionalism and a "hymn to metal and folded sheet." This volume also includes texts of previously unpublished conversations with Prouve about the Flying Club and Maison du Peuple.
