Jules LELEU (1883 - 1961) and Ateliers Jean... - Lot 5 - De Baecque et Associés
Jules LELEU (1883 - 1961) and Ateliers Jean Prouvé Circa 1936 for the Martel de Janville sanatorium Bed Structure with integrated bedside cabinet on the left with a drawer in front and a pivoting door Folded, welded sheet steel, red lacquered H. 92 cm - W. 134 cm - D. 190 cm Wear, lacquer chips, scratches, non-original wooden shelf Provenance : Sanatorium Martel de Janville Monsieur P. Collection, Paris Bibliography: Leleu, 50 ans de mobilier et de décoration. Collectif, Édition Somogy éditions d'art 2007. Similar model shown on p. 98 and 99 Built between 1934 and 1936, the Sanatorium Martel de Janville under the direction of architects Pol Abraham and Henry-Jacques Le Même was one of the great modernist adventures of the 1930s. Decorator Jules Leleu was chosen to design the functional furniture that would become one of the first examples of mass-produced metal furniture, thanks to the workshops of Jean Prouvé. With its functional and hygienic design, the use of sheet metal and the revolutionary choice of simple red lacquer, this furniture, the result of the collaboration between one of the great designers of Art Deco and one of the pioneers of metal, was one of the most modern of its time.
