Table Solvay - Jean Prouvé, 1941
During the years of 1941 and 1942, Jean Prouvé’s studios planned and realized various interior design projects for the chemical company Solvay. Among his many designs of this time, there was also a wooden table that is a prime example of Prouvé’s creations: The necessities of statics and the force path are clearly reflected in his design details – similar to the later EM Table that differs from the Table Solvay due to its metal table legs. When the Table Solvay was created during World War II, there was a metal shortage and so the table legs were made of wood. The solid oiled woods give Table Solvay a high-quality homely feel and compensate for its cool design.
Table top: Solid wood, oiled; natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut.
Base: to match the tabletop made of solid wood, oiled in natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut. Tubular steel strut, powdercoated.
