Item description for Jean Prouvé - Oeuvre complète / Complete Works: Volume 2: 1934-1944 (Jean Prouve: Complete Works) by Erika Sulzer-Kleinemeier Peter Sulzer...

Jean Prouv (1901-1984) was one of the most renowned design engineers of the 20th century. This volume, the second in Birkhuser's 4-volume edition of Prouv's Complete Works, covers the period between 1934 and 1944, including such significant works as the "semi-metal" Chair no. 4 and its variations, which went into serial production from 1935 onwards, office furniture for the Parisian Electricity Supply Works and seating for the lecture hall of the cole des sciences politiques in Paris. In 1934 Prouv's workshop commenced production of entirely pre-fabricated sheet metal buildings such as the Flying Club at Buc. One of the triumphs of this period is the Maison du Peuple communal hall in Clichy, an outstanding monument of functionalism and a "hymn to metal and folded sheet". This volume also includes texts of previously unpublished conversations with Prouv about the Flying Club and Maison du Peuple.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jean Prouvé - Oeuvre complète / Complete Works: Volume 2: 1934-1944 (Jean Prouve: Complete Works)?

For the Prouve Completist  Mar 2, 2000
Despite the importance of his work, Prouve has largely been neglected in books about mid-century modern design. This book (along with the first and forthcoming volumes) offers a very detailed look at Prouve's designs and puts the evolution of his design and metal fabrication skills into perspective. This book shouldn't be missed by any collector of Prouve's work.
