Jean Prouvé, 1950/1954

The Trapèze table by Jean Prouvé owes its name to the trapezoidal shape of the sheet steel legs, which also lends the table its iconic character. Originally designed for the Cité Universitaire in Antony near Paris, the sturdy table is perfectly suited to a wide range of uses in office environments and other public or semi-public spaces.
