Jean Prouvé INSA facade panel France 1960





Architectural grille facade element designed by Jean Prouve and manufactured by C.I.M.T, France 1960. This panel was part of the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA), Doua campus building, Villeurbanne, France 1957. This isolation element is made of pressed aluminium and is foam filled. It is a very decorative architectural element, when hanging on a wall it is like a piece of art. And of course, beautiful to combine with mid century furniture, or other Jean Prouvé furniture as the example on the pictures (chair not available for sale). The element is in original condition, has some bumps and signs of wear but this was hanging vertically on a building for 60 years, so this has age related wear. The last 3 pictures are from the Campus where you can see the panels still mounted to the building. A few years ago, the building was completely renovated, and many panels were destroyed. Luckily a few were still saved.A highly decorative piece by one of the most wanted designers of the 20th century.
