Jean Prouvé Consignment
Jean Prouvé’s groundbreaking 20th century furniture commands high prices at auction because it is practical, functional and collectible. Celebrated for his ability to meld the finer principles of art, design and architecture, Prouvé is known for sculptural furniture designs, as well as his pioneering pre-fabricated housing, many of which were as compact as 6 x 6 meters and 6 x 9 meters. He frequently collaborated with other mid-century design greats such as Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier.
If you have a piece of furniture by Jean Prouvé that you are interested in selling, Sotheby’s can help you realise the highest price. Global collectors of 20th century design covet mid-century Jean Prouvé furniture, decorative accessories and pre-fabricated French architecture.
