The Prouvé RAW Collection gives some of Prouvé’s best-known works – as a well as lesser-known ones – a fresh and contemporary new look and feel.

“My father would have liked the new energy that this co-operation injects into his designs. He always wanted things to look fresh and crisp,” says Jean Prouvé’s daughter, Catherine Prouvé.

Table S.A.M. Tropique (1950)
The Prouvé family had worked closely with Vitra and G-Star across a span of 2 years on the collection, which includes the Cite lounge chair (1930), the Tabouret Solvay wooden stool (1941), and the Tabouret no. 307 stool (1951).

The pieces feature the muted colours of grey, cream and brown timber and retain the well-loved utilitarian aesthetic of the Prouvé originals.

There are 17 reinterpreted designs, of which 9 are available in limited production.
