The Fauteuil de Salon combines plain surfaces into a complete architectural form with a comfortable seat and backrest. Rediscovered in the archives of the French design engineer, the chair’s colour was adapted for modern tastes. Thanks to the armrests in oiled solid wood and Prouvé’s typical philosophy of focusing on design factors, Fauteuil de Salon goes perfectly with other products in the Prouvé Collection.
Jean Prouvé, who always considered himself a design engineer, was also the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique range of designs includes letter openers, door and window fittings, lamps and furniture – and even prefabricated houses and modular construction systems; essentially, anything that can be designed and industrially manufactured.
 
Seat and backrest Polyurethane foam; upholstery: Twill or Cité fabrics, or leather Premium.
Armrests Solid wood, oiled; natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut.
Base  Round and moulded sheet steel, powder-coated (smooth).
Glides  Glides for carpets or glides with felt pads for hard floors.
