jean prouvé

a beautiful interior layout in this month's elle decoration italia showcases an adjustable shelving system by french master jean prouvé. a similar example from the '50s is shown at top. the smaller piece is from the the '30s. the library ladder (also '50's) is a bit "involved" but stunning nonetheless. the only really readily available prouvé shelving today is the small unit shown below, manufactured by vitra.

i love the library ladder! it was in an ad for the Galerie Patrick Seguine and I ripped it out of the mag because I thought it was so beautiful.
