Fauteuil de Salon Chair
Description
A 1939 concept rediscovered in Jean Prouvé’s archive, this architectonic lounge chair offers comfort in a versatile, understated design. With its sleek silhouette and simple, contrasting palette of wood, steel, and upholstery, it’s ideal for any home or office sitting area. Available in three curated combinations of twill fabric upholstery, frames, and armrests. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in MoMA’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.
