Description

The Guéridon Bas is a reason for Jean Prouvé to be more famous as a constructer than as a designer. The couch table is produced by Vitra today.

In the beginning of the 1940s, Jean Prouvé more and more concentrated on working with wood. The low availability of steel during the Second World War and the hard production conditions obliged the designer to think differently in his work, since modern materials and manufacturing methods of the Bauhaus era weren’t available anymore. This is how Prouvé started to create furniture pieces with classic materials and simple constructions, making them more modern than ever.

This was possible for the French designer because he combined stylistic devices cleverly: regarding his coffee table Guéridon Bas, there is a heavy table top on three feet of massive oak wood. The elements are connected by a construction out of notched bleach. The feet are apparently protruding and set accents. The Guéridon Bas couch table is contemporaneous despite of its traditional material because of its constructive clearness – then as well as today.
