Jean Prouve Facade element in enemal France 1965





Rare facade element by Jean Prouve, designed for the André-Argouges high school, Grenoble France 1965. Made of enamelled metal with isolation inside. All the façades for this building were built from three panel models: one with fixed glazing, one with an opening window (sliding) and the third, like this one, solid. These three interchangeable panels are fixed to the façade mullions of various buildings according to interior requirements. This results on the one hand, in great unity if one module is used, on the other hand, in interesting variety of rhythm and colour achieved by arranging the panels.


Technically, the glazed panels are made of drawn aluminium sections: the solid panels have an external facing of steel, kiln-lacquered or enamelled, internal insulation, and an internal facing of wood. Highly decorative, we also have one available in grey.
