DuringTable Solvay - Jean Prouvé, 1941
During 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.
