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 regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.
