Jean Prouvé, 1944
In the early 1940s, Jean Prouvé began to work more extensively with wood. The Guéridon Bas table has a heavy top in solid oak or American walnut resting on three legs in the same wood. These elements are joined together by a robust construction made out of bent sheet metal. Guéridon Bas is also available with a dark finish, harking back to an original version made of tropical wood known as the 'Table Africaine'.
