Details

Mixing a steel frame, comfortable upholstery, and wood armrests, the Fauteuil Direction Pivotant desk chair (1951) demonstrates Jean Prouvé’s distinctive aesthetic – a commitment to utility that doesn’t sacrifice beauty. The thick seat and back cushions rest on a sleek steel frame with a five-star swivel base on casters for easy movement. The swivel seat is height-adjustable, and the backward tilt mechanism can be adjusted to the sitter. In classic Prouvé style, the wooden armrests add a touch of warmth and comfort – proof that business can be beautiful. Made in Germany.

Jean Prouvé

“Never design anything that cannot be made,” Jean Prouvé once said. His practical body of work ranged from letter openers to doorknobs, furniture to modularly constructed buildings. Prouvé always regarded himself as more of an engineer, or “constructor,” than a designer. He never designed for the sake of form alone, concentrating instead on the essence of materials, connections, and production.
