Jean Prouvé is recognized as one of the twentieth century’s pioneers in innovative production of furniture and architecture.

This new 764-page publication that is both didactic and thorough presents his body of work in detail,
featuring both his furniture and his architecture. The two volumes comprise texts, interviews and historical information illustrated with contemporary images, previously unseen plans and numerous archival photographs.

The publication presents an overall view of the constructor and his avant-garde and humanist spirit.

JEAN PROUVÉ – 2 VOLUME BOX SET – PUBLISHED BY GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN, 2017

Today the oeuvre of French architect and designer Jean Prouvé is considered essential to the history of twentieth century design. Prouvé’s furniture designs were determined by the interior spaces the pieces would inhabit, and were developed in tandem with Modernist principles of the “art of living” and “harmonious habitat” that were so characteristic of the time. This exquisitely produced and comprehensive volume, put together by Paris’ Galerie Patrick Seguin, is a new and enriched version of the original monograph published in 2007 to fill a hole in the previously existing scholarship, most of which focused on Prouvé’s architecture. It includes a collection of interviews with collectors and design professionals, a detailed biography of Prouvé by his daughter, Catherine Prouvé, and essays by design historian Raymond Guidot and architecture historian Catherine Coley.
The new Jean Prouvé monograph will be more extensive (750 pages) than the first version. It will have a similar format with newly designed graphics as well as a new cover.

GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN LONDON – ART & INDUSTRIE

Since its opening in October 2015, Galerie Patrick Seguin London has staged exhibitions highlighting important 20th century French works of design and architecture. Art & Industrie continues in this tradition, while seamlessly integrating iconic pieces of furniture and architectural elements by Jean Prouvé with works of contemporary art by British artist Adam McEwen. The combination of these realms illustrates the increasingly blurred lines between them and the dynamic synergy that is created when they come together. Among the design pieces the Métropole no. 305 Chair (ca. 1950), the Flavigny no. 504 Table (ca. 1951), and the Porthole Panel (ca. 1951) by Jean Prouvé, will be presented.
