Jean Prouve was born in France where he worked with his father creating arts, their mission was to make art readily accessible for the public. Together they made beautiful furniture out of ply and metals, he was taught by the best as a black smith, metal worker and wood worker before he started on his masterpieces. His furniture is very easily recognizable as the style is so unique and the colours he used also make them very easy to identify in his chairs especially. Many different 'Replicas' of his pieces are available on the market today, they really do replicate them quite well, most of the time replica's look tacky and cheap but not in this case. Jean really was a very talented man but sadly he passed in 1984 in the town he's lived in all his life.
