Design Jean Prouvé, 1944
Solid oak legs, oak veneer top
Made in Germany by Vitra

In the early 1940's, Jean Prouve turned his attention increasingly to wood as a material. In the case of the Gueridon Bas coffee table, a sturdy top is positioned on three solid oak feet. The elements are connected to each other by means of a folded sheet metal construction. Referencing a tropical wood version of the time entitled 'Table Africaine', this re-edition is also available in dark oak.

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), architect, engineer and designer, was endeavored for using highly-developed technologies for metal processing to achieve innovative constructions and forms in his design and architecture work. He played a decisive part in developing construction techniques using light-weight prefabricated parts in architecture, making use, among other things, of insights from the airplane and automotive industry. In his Ateliers Jean Prouvé, the company he founded in 1947, he started not only producing light-weight components but also his own design drafts.
