Johan van Hengel is a furniture and product designer based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

More than 70 years after their initial creation, a selection of Jean Prouvé office masterpieces is set to return at the hands of G-Star and Vitra. Reworked for the demands of modern office life, the new collection will be available for collectors and companies from April 2015. Building on the success of the first Prouvé RAW collection, this second crossover collection revives a series of furniture and lighting originals designed by Jean Prouvé in the 1940s for the offices of major French industrial companies.
The Office Edition was first conceived to furnish the new G-Star RAW HQ, built in 2014 by architect Rem Koolhaas. G-Star has long had an affinity with Jean Prouvé’s constructive logic and use of pure, industrial materials. The chance to update and bring back Prouvé’s office furniture designs was an unmissable opportunity.Designed in cooperation with the Prouvé family, the new collection is presented in a custom palette inspired by the greens of classic industrial machinery, and features necessary adaptions made by Vitra engineers.
