Design at Fondation CAB Saint-Paul de Vence

Fondation CAB Saint-Paul de Vence offers a design collection to welcome its public. Furniture in the exhibition spaces of Paul Kjaerholm and Fabricius & Kastholm. Reading room furniture by Jules Wabbes and Pierre Jeanneret and exterior lighting by Pour Henningsen.

It is under the freshness of the orange and lemon trees within Fondation CAB itself that the SOL café-restaurant invites its guests to discover a tasty menu with furniture by Charlotte Perriand.

Fondation CAB’s four guest rooms have been redesigned by architect and designer Charles Zana to offer each of our guests an exceptional experience. The rooms pay homage to the creations of Pierre Jeanneret, Gino Sarfatti, Gaetano Sciolari, Jean Prouvé, Alvar Aalto, Angelo Lelli, Fritz Hansen, Sergio Rodriguez, Paolo Buffa, Poul Kjaerholm, Max Ingrand, Hans J. Wegner.

A demountable house from 1944 by the architect and designer Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), 6×6 meters, has been adapted into a bedroom with its furniture by Prouvé, while respecting its original structure. Adjoining the house, a bathroom in the spirit of the original design was designed by architect Charles Zana. A unique experience for architecture and design enthusiasts.

In 2023, Fondation CAB established a partnership with the Villa Noailles as part of the Design Parade, paying tribute to a great lady of design, Andrée Putman and the Creators of the Modern Movement, and is continuing programming focused on design for the coming seasons.

In 2024, Fondation CAB Saint-Paul-de-Vence is presenting an exhibition by Muller Van Severen, the Belgian design duo Fien Muller (1978, Lokeren) and Hannes Van Severen (1979, Ghent) renowned for their sculpturally interesting furniture objects. For this exhibition, Muller Van Severen is not only presenting a selection of their work from the past 12 years, but they are also adding an extra dimension to the experience by zooming in (literally through the photography duo Scheltens and Abbenes) and zooming out by showing objects such as prototypes, drawings, materials, etc… The result is a unique and distinct look at the work and working methods of one of Europe’s most image-defining design studios.
