Fauteuil de Salon

Jean Prouvé, 1939

  • Fauteuil de Salon joins simple planes into a unified architectural object with a comfortable seat surface and backrest. Rediscovered in the archives of the French engineer Jean Prouvé, the armchair has been updated in a contemporary colour palette. With oiled, solid wood armrests and the designer's characteristic structural aesthetic, the Fauteuil de Salon can be ideally combined with other pieces in the Prouvé Collection.

Jean Prouvé, who always considered himself a design engineer, was also the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique range of designs includes letter openers, door and window fittings, lamps and furniture – and even prefabricated houses and modular construction systems; essentially, anything that can be designed and industrially manufactured.
