Views of the Jean Prouvé Exhibition at Jousse Entreprise

Our good friends at WO AND WÉ, a site that I’ve admired for quite a while now, put me onto this Jean Prouvé exhibiton that started last month at Jousse Entreprise, a gallery in Paris that showcases a range of well-known designers like Le Corbusier, Serge Mouille, and Alexandre Noll. Most of which we’ve covered here in the past. I’m not one for copying over content and we and …

Leslie Williamson Photographs Constantin Brancusi’s Atelier

I better insert a spoiler alert before we begin today as I’ve once again raided the blog of photographer Leslie Williamson as she puts together the second edition of her handcrafted modern book. Now I really hope I’m not revealing too much that is to reach the final publication, I’m assuming these are really great outakes that Leslie has decided to tease us all with online. With every new …

Jean Girel Ceramics

Today I thought I’d bring across a set of works by French ceramic artist Jean Girel, he’s a real talent and definitely deserves to be showcased. This specific set of imagery was picked up from his recent exhibition at Maison Gerard, who always do a fantastic job at photographing the objects that they have on display. Unfortunately I caught this one a tad bit late and the exhibition was only on for a month long period, finishing May 24th. so it’s …

Jean Prouvé Architecture, Prefabricated and Dismantable Houses

As you may know already I’ve showcased various bits of imagery over the year from gallery Patrick Seguin, which happens to be one of my favourite “go to” places at the moment. Patrick is actually quite a prominent figure of the 20th century design world who helped promote various famous creatives such as the brilliant Charlotte Perriand, Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier, and the man who we’ll …
