Jean Prouve was born into an artistic family in Nancy, France. Prouve trained as a metalsmith before attending technical school in Nancy, and his deep knowledge of metal remained the foundation of his work and career.
After opening his own workshop in 1923, Prouve began producing modern metal furniture of his own design and collaborated with some of the best-known French designers of the time, including Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand.
