Table Solvay

HK$45,480
Pre-Order Lead Time: 16 - 18 weeks
Designed by Jean Prouvé, 1941

Due to the scarcity of metal during World War II, the Solvay table was designed and constructed with wooden legs. The solid wood components and fine oiled finish of the Solvay table give it a sense of ease and refinement, mitigating the technical coolness of its design.

Numerous pieces of furniture were developed in connection with this commission, including a table made of wood that exemplifies Prouvé's construction methods: its structural details illustrate the interplay of forces and stresses similar to the later design of the EM Table, whose metal legs distinguish it from its predecessor.
