The idea of accessible, mass-produced design that is affordable to anyone was not only applied to industrial mechanics, but also to the aesthetics of architecture and furniture.

This philosophy of practicality came to be called Functionalism. It became a popular catchword and played a large role in theories of modern design.

Jean Prouvé


Prouvé was influential in the development of the idea of nomadic architecture, likening a chair to a house, and designing both with portability in mind.

Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic, functional, economic and sociopolitical dimensions of the design object & design process.
