Jean Prouvé, son of the sculptor and painter Victor Prouvé, was born in Paris in 1901. He is internationally renowned for being one of the most important designers and architects of his time, despite his training in ironwork. 

Prouvé began his career designing bannisters, canopies, railings, and gates before entering the field of furniture design in 1924. He then chose to work with steel and aluminium, easier to handle and twist than iron, in this field. He established the Ateliers Jean Prouvé and collaborated with Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand.

His furniture was exhibited and widely distributed by galleries such as the Galerie Steph Simon. He developed furniture for residential interiors, schools and offices. Discover the famous Jean Prouvé Standard chair produced by Diiiz, respecting the original lines of the Jean Prouvé Chair.
