In the early 1940's, Jean Prouve turned his attention increasingly to wood as a material.

In the case of the Gueridon 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 is a re-edition by Vitra available in dark oak.
