Antony Chair (1954)

One of the last pieces of furniture Prouvé ever designed, this chair, designed for the Cité Universitaire at Antony, was a stylish way to go out with its calligraphic curve.

Total Filling Station (1969)

Recalling the work of another prefab precursor, Buckminster Fuller, Prouvé’s inspirational gas station concept, made of glass, steel, and aluminum, puts most service stations to shame.

Metropole Aluminum House (1949)

One of Prouvé’s postwar prefab successes, this portico layout won a Ministry of Education competition to design a rural schoolhouse that could be mass produced. While the building looks spartan, small touches, such as a wood and aluminum interior and space for a glassed-in winter garden, make it more than merely livable.
