Jean Prouvé is one of the world’s most renowned architects and a new book from Phaidon takes a deeper look at his legacy. JEAN PROUVÉ: Architect of the best days is a collaborative effort with the LUMA foundation and goes deep into the work of Prouvé, mixing essays about his work alongside archival imagery of his greatest works.
