Jean Prouvé Bahut storage unit

Vitra_bahut

Another classic design back in production, courtesy of Vitra, the Bahut storage unit from Jean Prouvé.

Prouvé designed this back in 1951, it’s an unusual use of materials even today, The casing is steel with a white lacquer, the detailing/handles are made of solid oak and the ‘doors’ are made of a diamond sheet metal – which combine to make something mid-century, but at the same time, something quite industrial.

As you’ve probably guessed, the Bahut isn’t cheap, retailing for around £4,500.
