An apt companion to the wooden Tabouret Solvay from Vitra, this metal iteration is a beautifully considered piece of sculptural design. The Tabouret Métallique features Prouvé's trademark use of industrial aesthetics to magnificent effect, with the stool remaining essentially unchanged from its initial design in 1936. Available in four characterful colourways, including hues designed by Prouvé himself, the Tabouret Métallique will make for a dynamic and welcome addition to any living space or setting.
Jean Prouve was born into an artistic family in Nancy, France. Prouve 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, Prouve 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.
