GALERIE PATRICK SEGUIN has been invited to lend a selection of furniture and architecture by JEAN PROUVÉ as part of the exhibition Paris Moderne 1914-1945: Architecture, Design, Film, Fashion, at the Power Station of Art.
Focused on Paris during the Golden Age, this retrospective showcases more than 300 pieces which illustrate thirty years of ingenuity. At this occasion, the gallery’s contributions are a 6 x 6 demountable house, three ‘Compas’ architectural elements and five chairs all conceived by Jean Prouvé, “constructor” of visionary genius and resolutely modern.
