At the beginning of the 1950s Prouvé designed the EM Table for the “Maison Tropique” project. With every single detail governed by its construction, the table follows the aesthetics of necessity.
The base of the table is made of powder-coated moulded sheet steel with a solid wood top. Available in 5 different sizes. The Vitra EM Dining Table also comes with a beautiful laminate top version EM Table (HPL). In 2022 the Prouve foundation approved the use of these 5 exciting base colours, the original version - EM Table (solid Wood Top) comes in 3 colours.

Jean Prouvé completed his training as a metal artisan before opening his own workshop in Nancy in 1924. In the following years he created numerous furniture designs, this success enabled him to open his own factory in 1947. He left his mark on architectural history again in 1971, when he played a major role in selecting the design of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers for the Centre Pompidou as chairman of the competition jury. In close cooperation with the Prouvé family, Vitra began in 2002 to issue re-editions of his iconic and timeless designs.
