Jean Prouvé Tout Bois Chair
"c. 1940s, oak structure, plywood seat and backrest painted red. The “Chaise Tout Bois” is the only Jean Prouvé chair that is made entirely out of wood. It was designed during the Second World War, at a time when metal was used for arsenal and had become a scarcity. The chairs' form and ergonomics are focused on practicality, comfort, longevity and energy saving. The chairs are stripped-back from any superfluous embellishments, light but solid, mass-produced and originally inexpensive to answer the needs of a population during and post-war. By a strange twist of fate, Jean Prouvé's chairs are today highly valuable, their apparent simplicity enchanting the modern design collectors." - Via Webb's Auction House
