"First built in 1944 to rehouse war victims in Lorraine, these houses only survived the postwar period in very limited numbers. Doubly involved in regeneration of the region as a native of Nancy and a builder of genius -- Jean Prouvé won an order for emergency housing from the Ministry of Reconstruction and Town Planning. Readily transported and dismantled, his 'shacks' made entirely of wood and metal (of which the latter was in very short supply) were a real architectural coup. The components were shipped directly to bomb-devastated villages, where they could be assembled on site in a day by two people, enabling the homeless to stay on. Unfortunately, the shortage of materials and funding, together with official emphasis on the need for permanent housing, meant that production of these transitional dwellings never got beyond the limited series stage. Jean Prouvé was awarded the Ministry's Gold Medal in 1947"--Provided by publisher

A passion for Jean Prouvé : from furniture to architecture : the Laurence and Patrick Seguin collection by Jean Prouvé( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and Italian and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The esteemed collectors Laurence and Patrick Seguin first discovered the work of Jean Prouve in the late 1980s, and were quick to embrace his entire aesthetic vision, from architectural design to furniture. "There is no difference between constructing a piece of furniture and constructing a building," Prouve once famously said, and the Seguins have modeled their collection around his stance, becoming major advocates and disseminators of his work in France. This gorgeously produced volume, which presents the Seguins' Prouve collection for the first time, consequently provides a comprehensive overview of their holdings. An entire chapter is devoted to Prouve works at the Seguins' Paris residence. Other sections include an examination of Prouve's relevance to contemporary art; a chapter on Prouve's Aluminum Metropole House, a structure that exemplifies the brilliance of Prouve's architectural work; and a survey of around 40 pieces, most of which are prototypes or rarities, from the armchair designed for the University of Nancy in 1932, to the light armchair created for the University of Antony in 1954, to the African furniture. These are supplemented by archival documents (sketches, models, photographs, etc. and detailed analysis. Also included is a wealth of photo-documentation of the exhibition this volume accompanies, held at the famous former Fiat building in Turin, Italy--once described by Le Corbusier as "one of the most impressive sights in industry" and recently rebuilt into a modern shopping/cultural complex by Renzo Piano, a longstanding admirer of Prouve. Equally admired for his work in furniture, metalwork and architecture, Jean Prouve (1901-1984) is one of the most influential designers of the early modern design movement. His innovative chairs, desks, lamps and shelves have long been collector's items

Jean Prouvé, Charles & Ray Eames : two great constructors, parallels and differences : constructive furniture = Zwei grossen Konstrukteure, Parallelen und Unterschiede : Möbel als Konstruktion = Deux grands constructeurs, parallèles et différences : le mobilier construit by Mathias Remmele( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fields of design, architecture, and engineering, Jean Prouvé (1901–1984) is widely considered one of the most versatile and innovative designers of the 20th century. Yet surprisingly, only a relatively small number of collectors and cognoscente outside France are familiar with his work. Alongside Charles and Ray Eames, to whose oeuvre Vitra has dedicated itself since 1957, Jean Prouvé can truly be considered the second major 'constructor' in 20th century design. The small book delves into the manifest differences between the Eames' work and Prouvé's designs -- differences that are quite evidently the product of the respective technological climate in which these marvelous designers were active. For many years now, the Vitra Design Museum collection has focused on Jean Prouvé as well as Charles and Ray Eames"--Provided by publisher
