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.
