Jean Prouvé

Prouvé was born into an artistic family in Nancy, France; his father, Victor Prouvé, collaborated with the great Art Nouveau artists Emile Galle and Louis Majorelle as a ceramicist. Prouve himself was trained as a metalsmith before attending engineering school in Nancy, and his intimate knowledge of metal remained the foundation of his work and career.

After opening his own workshop in 1923, Prouvé began producing modern metal furniture of his own design as well as collaborating with some of the best-known French designers of the day, including Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand.
