Design Miami/ Basel 2014 – Pierre Jeanneret & Jean Prouvé – F 8×8 BCC House

From 16 to 22 June, on the occasion of Design Miami/Basel 2014, Galerie Patrick Seguin is pleased to present the unprecedented F 8×8 BCC House designed in 1942 by Pierre Jeanneret and Jean Prouvé.

The F 8×8 BCC House is the result of the collaboration between Pierre Jeanneret and Jean Prouvé and it is a perfect example of the practical application of the “axial portal frame” constructional system that Prouvé designed and patented in 1938. Adapted to the shortage of metal during the war, the F 8×8 BCC House was made entirely of wood.
