The House Collector

The Parisian dealer Patrick Seguin has championed French mid-century designer Jean Prouvé, whose prefabricated houses now sell for millions and are on display at Milan’s Expo 2015 and Basel’s Design Miami.  The dealer and his wife plan on testing Prouvé's nomadic vision for themselves this summer, dismantling the updated Prouvé house and crating it over to be reassembled on southern France's untamed Camargue coast. "But in August I want to be sleeping in Switzerland, in the mountains," says Seguin.  "The house will be our caravan."
