Revisiting the rich archives of Jean Prouvé, his daughter Catherine takes us on a stroll down memory lane. “My father loved to balance on the back legs of his chair,” recalls Catherine Prouvé of her father, Jean. “That’s the position he took to ponder over new inventions and design solutions,” she says. “He was the only one who managed to stay perfectly still on just two legs.”

Jean PROUVE 1901-1984 Ingénieur et architecte français. Prend conscience de la suprématie de la matière sur la forme, et expérimente de nouvelles techniques de soudure, de polissage, de pliage de la tôle d'acier. Développe le mobilier à partir de 1946. Entre 1949 et 1951, il réalise 3 prototypes de maison tropicales destinées à palier le manque d'habitations dans l'Afrique centrale, entièrement démontables et nécessitant que 2 semaines de montages.
