Jean Prouvé

In 1930 Jean Prouvé, certainly one of the greatest French designers of the 20th century, helped establish the Union of Modern Artists whose manifesto read, "We like logic, balance and purity."

The elegance and minimalism of his designs embody the modernist vision of a future both uncomplicated and streamlined. He designed the school desks pictured between 1930-1940. Fantastic!
