From the Publisher. This is the second volume in the four-part series of the Complete Works of Jean Prouve (1901-84), one of the most significant designers and constructors of this century. This publication covers an important period in Prouve's life when he designed and produced the lecture theatre seating at the Ecole des Sciences Politiques in Paris and the office furniture for the Parisian electric company. He also created furniture made of stainless steel for a school in Suresnes. In 1934 Prouve began with the factory production of prefabricated buildings using sheet-steel of which the club house at Buc Airport and the Maison du Peuple in Clichy, one of the most outstanding buildings in Functionalism, are excellent examples. Complementing this detailed catalogue are previously unpublished conversations with Prouve himself.
