Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), architect, engineer and designer, was endeavored for using highly-developed technologies for metal processing to achieve innovative constructions and forms in his design and architecture work. He played a decisive part in developing construction techniques using light-weight prefabricated parts in architecture, making use, among other things, of insights from the airplane and automotive industry. In his Ateliers Jean Prouvé, the company he founded in 1947, he started not only producing light-weight components but also his own design drafts.

Fauteuil direction chair features a powder-coated (smooth) round and molded sheet steel frame in 5 colors. The seat & backrest are polyurethane foam covered in your choice of fabric. The armrests are oiled solid wood in either natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut.
