Reminiscent of the rudder of an aircraft or ship, the streamlined shape of the two wall brackets of the Rayonnage Mural bookcase (1936) is a recurring element in Prouvé's creative oeuvre.
Jean Prouvé completed his training as a metal artisan before opening his own workshop in Nancy in 1924. In the following years he created numerous furniture designs, and in 1947 Prouvé established his own factory. Due to disagreements with the majority shareholders, he left the company in 1953. During the ensuing decades, Prouvé served as a consulting engineer on a number of important architectural projects in Paris.
