Tabouret Haut
Description

Jean Prouvé’s take on a traditional bar stool is marked by sleek, simple lines and robust materials. The round, solid oak seat and tapering legs are complemented by a chrome-plated steel reinforcing ring that doubles as a convenient footrest. Its clear construction, harmonious proportions, and utilitarian appeal make it ideal for breakfast bars and work tables. Available in natural or dark-stained oak. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in the Museum’s collection.

Jean Prouvé was trained as a metal artisan before expanding his work to include the full panoply of design—from letter openers to lighting to prefabricated houses. His designs encompass nearly everything that lends itself to industrial fabrication. He opened his first workshop in 1924 and, by 1947, had his own factory. Prouvé is also known for serving as the chairman of the committee that selected Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers’ design for the Centre Pompidou in 1971. Ten examples of Prouvé’s work are included in MoMA’s collection.
