Jean Prouvé was a French industrial designer and architect who lived from 1901 to 1984. He was known for his innovative use of materials and his emphasis on functionality in his designs. Prouvé was also an advocate for the use of prefabricated structures, which he believed would allow for greater efficiency and affordability in construction. His designs ranged from furniture and household objects to large-scale buildings and even bridges. Prouvé’s work continues to inspire and influence architects and designers around the world, and he is considered to be one of the most important figures in 20th century design.
