Jean Prouvé + Vitra/G-Star 1yr Almost Up...

Vitra and G-Star brought us Jean Prouvé's designs back in production, but only for 1 year;  so as this 1 year comes to a close, now is our last opportunity to preseve a bit of design history...

From Vitra "The Prouvé RAW Special Edition comprises nine designs by Jean Prouvé in exclusive versions interpreted by G‐Star RAW. The products of the Prouvé RAW Special Edition are numbered and feature a Prouvé RAW label. Starting in fall 2011, the objects in the collection will be available for ordering for one year from select Vitra retailers around the world."

"Jean Prouvé‘s designs use a language linked to necessity and construction while simultaneously giving technically innovative objects a poetic playfulness. Generally described as one of the greatest French designers of the 20th century, Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) was an architect, an engineer and a passionate teacher, a prolific inventor, a visionary manufacturer and the founder of the Ateliers Prouvé, which was for thirty years the factory as well as a laboratory for his experimental architecture projects and innovative furniture designs. But above all Jean Prouvé was a hands-on "constructeur", who never stopped experimenting with his designs, and was always adapting them to the spirit of the times."
