Guéridon Bas

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 in dark smoked oak, harking back to an original version crafted in tropical wood and known as the 'Table Africaine'.
