Furniture Design by Jean Prouve

Jean Prouve was an architect, engineer, and designer, credited with transferring manufacturing technology from industry to architecture without losing the aesthetic qualities. Prouve played a crucial role in developing construction techniques using lightweight prefabricated parts, many of which came from the aero and automatic industries. Described by Le Corbusier as combining the soul of an engineer with that of an architect, Prouve played a crucial role in the development of today's modern furniture and design.

Jean Prouve was born in Nancy and grew up under the stern ideals and vigour of Victor Prouve, his father, who was intimately submerged in art. Victor Prouve owned a collection of art that served as a school of art for designers and artists. It is from this experience that Jean made an intimate attachment with the industry and art. He forged a personal relationship so articulate that it made him discover the connection between consciousness and art. Jean prouve's work therefore united functionalism with inspiration. These were the core ramifications of his work. His designs were conceptual, having the nomadic mode of thinking where physical objects like a house and a chair were looked at as equal artistic objects. His designs were prospective and accountable in nature to enhance flexibility and longevity. The comfort and elegance of his designs made him highly sought after throughout the globe.

Jean Prouve's practicality emanated from the fact that his designs were widely acclaimed. He came up with a magnificent chair of high standards called Vitra, which brought together longevity and flexibility in furniture design. The chair was widely applauded for its high levels of comfort. Later, in the 1940s, Jean developed a fancy for wood instead of metal for creating furniture. He came up with a myriad of table parts that not only ensured maximum stability but also provided flexibility and different ranges.Amongst Jean's celebrated works are tables that came out with names like Trapeze, Compas, Em, Gueridon, and Granido. A table in the form of the Gueridon was designed specifically for the Universitaire Cite located at Antony. Many artists showered him with praise, saying that he had a wonderful soul for designs and art. It was from such encouragements that Jean's talents reached higher levels. He then came up with great designs of lounges, armchairs, wall shelves and even spaces for storage within a house.

Jean has been extensively praised for his divergent artistic sketches for buildings and constructions around and within Paris. He developed an interest for functionality and designs for a large number of contemporary constructions. He had a unique flair for creating an abstract connection between entrepreneurship and creativity. He also brought together industry and handicrafts, architecture and design hence extending his wide knowledge of designs. It was from such interests that gave birth to his designs that were inspired by the industry.Prouve also commenced working with steel and aluminium but later changed to other types of materials. His designing moved to incorporate bits of engineering; hence he was considered an engineer. He believed that all designs should have a possibility of being physically developed. It was from such a belief that he came up with wonderful designs that were easily put into use. His designs resulted in a vehement impact on the user of the products.

The works of Jean Prouve have influenced other contemporary designers. His designs are globally acclaimed, and are found in museums and with connoisseurs. Applications of his creations are popular in the furniture world.
