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

2 editions published in 2013 in Italian and English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The esteemed collectors Laurence and Patrick Seguin first discovered the work of Jean Prouvé 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," Prouvé 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' Prouvé collection for the first time, consequently provides a comprehensive overview of their holdings. An entire chapter is devoted to Prouvé works at the Seguins' Paris residence. 0Exhibition: Pinacoteca Giovanni e Marella, Turin, Italy (5.4.-8.9.2013). 0

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
