Chaise Directeur Jean Prouvé

Written by . Filed under wander. Tagged , , , , , . No comments.

As if it’s in the air I recently stumbled upon the news that Dutch jeans brand G Star and Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra joined hands in launching an authorized reedition of Prouvé’s Chaise Directeur. I learned to appreciate  the work of Jean Prouvé some years ago while being an interior designer. This metalsmith-engineer-designer-maker, who even made it into mayor of Nancy, was one of the enigmatic forefathers of the Modernist movement and of design as we know it today.(Photo:MoMa)

It proved to inspire even more output when people started writing on the tablecovers printed for the occasion.

In the framework of the development of the neighbourhood around the Olympisch Stadion in Amsterdam, The Beach organised an event and published a magazine ‘O’ to advocate and promote the local cultural rhizomes of this area and its potential within cityplanning.
