The Ateliers Jean Prouvé built the structure housing the Ferembal offices in Nancy in 1948. Only a few of prototypes were ever made. Rescued from the demolition of the Ferembal site in 1983, this striking example is another eloquent illustration of the approach’s technical and functional virtues as well as its adaptability.

In 1991 the French design dealer (and tireless Prouvé champion) retrieved the structure from storage in Nancy, France, where it had once served as the office for a factory, and then began raising funds to restore it. To help, he enlisted architect Jean Nouvel, whose innovative adaptation of the building into a single-story edifice was put on view at Paris’s Tuileries Garden in 2010. The project has been preserved in this publication.
