Jean Prouvé, 1941
Jean Prouvé developed Table Solvay during the Second World War and due to the scarcity of metal at that time, he designed the elegant piece with wooden legs. The solid wood components in a choice of natural oak, dark smoked oak or American walnut lend the table a sense of ease and refinement.
Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.
