The designer and engineer Jean Prouvé developed the EM Table (Entretoise Metalliqué, metal struts) around 1950 for the 'Masion Tropicale' project - A prototype pre-fab house. Adhering to the aesthetics of necessity, even the smallest details of this table are determined by its construction. The slanted legs are connected by a crossbar, physically illustrating the structural forces and flow of stresses in a way that is typically seen only in engineering structures. Constructed from a 34mm thick solid oak or walnut tabletop with a steel base, the EM Table is an instantly recognisable Prouvé design to last for generations. With its robust construction, the table is versatile and can be used as everything from a studio working desk to dining table.

The EM Table is also available with a HPL (High Pressure Laminate) tabletop on request.

    Jean Prouvé

    This product is designed by
    Jean Prouvé

    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, and in 1947 Prouvé established his own factory.

    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. Prouvé's work encompasses a wide range of objects, from a letter opener to door and window fittings, lighting and furniture, façade elements and prefabricated houses / modular building systems to large exhibition structures – essentially, almost anything that is suited to industrial production methods.
