Ateliers Jean Prouvé at the MOMA

leave a comment »

With all the excitement surrounding today’s digital manufacturing technologies, it is interesting to look at an earlier historical moment of workshop mass-production, as practiced by the great French architect and designer Jean Prouvé (1901-1984). This exhibition examines Prouvé’s collaborations within his Ateliers Jean Prouvé from idea to finished product.
