In the early 1940s Jean Prouvé turned his attention increasingly to wood as a material. In the case of the Vitra Guéridon Bas coffee table a sturdy top is positioned on three solid oak feet.
The elements are connected to each other by means of a folded sheet metal construction. Referencing a tropical wood version of the time entitled "Table Africaine", this versions is made of solid wood with a beautiful oiled finish

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.
