Guéridon

Jean Prouvé, 1949

The Guéridon table, which was produced by the designer and engineer Jean Prouvé for the University of Paris, is a convincing demonstration of clear structural principles. This wooden table is a variation of Prouvé’s architecturally informed design vocabulary in a natural material, proving that modern tables do not have to be made out of steel and glass.
