Prouvé RAW - contemporary extension of the Jean Prouvé portfolio

Office furniture series and Home furniture series, based on designs by modernist designer Jean Prouvé.

Reissues of a selection of furniture and lighting that was originally designed for offices of French industrial companies by Jean Prouvé in the 1940s. Some items have never been produced before. Working with the designer’s family and Vitra, all pieces in the collection were reinterpreted to work in today’s modern offices, including accounting for increased human height, modern production methods, EU certifications and functional elements like height adjustability and e.g. cable management. Prouvé RAW Office Edition and the Prouvé RAW Home Editions are made up of 23 pieces that stay true to Prouvé’s designs while bringing them into modern times.
