Description

Treat yourself to an ORIGINAL iconic piece by Vitra. An original will always hold its value. It will stay with you for your whole life and will outlive you, being passed on to the next generation. A self-taught architect with a passion for industrialising buildings, Jean Prouvé (1901 - 1984) is now considered a leading architect and one of the greatest designers of the 20th century, on a par with Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand. A pioneer, Prouvé played a major role in the development of mass production techniques in the European post-war modernist movement. Jean Prouvé developed a "constructive thought" based on a logic of series manufacturing and functionality to create an aesthetic that’s purified of all artifice. The designer has a wide portfolio of designs ranging from prefabricated homes to furniture for offices, classrooms and interiors. Jean Prouvé's creations have become icons of the post-war period and have spanned the whole century. During the Second World War, due to the shortage of metal at the time, Jean Prouvé devoted himself more and more to working in wood. Designed in 1941, the Solvay stool bears the inimitable signature of the French designer and engineer: its clear building principles are characteristic of the work of Jean Prouvé. Very solid, it consists of a thick solid wooden seat resting on three legs made of the same wood. These elements are interconnected by sturdy joining elements made of bent sheet steel. Available in different types of wood, this restrained stool, with its pure modernist style, adapts to the most diverse settings.
