Jean Prouve was among the most important designers of the modern era. He revolutionized Furniture and household objects with an aesthetic legacy that clearly Fused elements of modernist art, architecture and industrial design. The fluidity and finely crafted simplicity of his work in metals and wood Found their apex in his chairs, tables, shelves and screens, as well as in the buildings he designed. This book surveys Prouve's entire output -- both his Furniture and architecture -- with extensive photographs, biographical information and text, a detailed chronology, essays by specialists and Prouve's own children, and a well researched bibliography and exhibition history. As befits a man who valued craft, the book itself is a tribute in its rich, streamlined design -- with more than 270 color and 130 black-and-white reproductions -- to Prouve's work.
