Jean Prouvé was a French metal worker, self-taught architect and designer. Le Corbusier designated Prouvé a constructeur, blending architecture and engineering. Prouvé's main achievement was transferring manufacturing technology from industry to architecture, without losing aesthetic qualities.
Fully re wired with modern electrical components, metal parts have been burnished and clear lacquered. One lamp has had some historic repairs with some re welding.
