Miraculously rescued from destruction, Jean Prouvé's Ferembal House - originally built in 1948  as an office for a factory in Nancy - is the embodiment of the French architect's radical developments in utilitarian design. Having been acquired by gallery owner Patrick Seguin in 1983, since 2007 the house has been the subject of an intense 3-year restoration project by Jean Nouvel

The Ferembal House is currently on view in the Tuileries Garden in Paris (until 6th December), where it has resided since the launch in October of Fiac 2010, the Paris Design and Architecture Festival. An exhibition to coincide with the restoration of the Ferembal House, Jean Prouvé: Architecture, which profiles many of the architect's achivements, will be on view at Gagosian's new Paris Gallery until 23rd of December 2010
