  An Ever-Popular Model by Prouvé
 

The many designer chairs presented at the sale in Marseille on Friday, October 14 by the R&C auction house (Cabinet Coulet), will include this "Grand Repos” armchair and its footrest by Jean Prouvé (1901-1984). Its model was presented to the Union of Modern Artists (UAM) in 1930. Made of leather, fabric and steel, it was edited in around 1985 by Tecta. This chair, which Prouvé produced for many years with certain variants, is based on a seat and a backrest made in one piece, both sliding on ball bearings inserted along the sides of the base. Springs are used to adjust the inclination. The one here stands out for its two casters on the front legs and its straight rather than rounded side uprights.
