Designed by Jean Prouvé in 1944, the Gueridon Bas ('Low Coffee Table' in English) is one of Prouvé's earliest furniture designs. In the early 1940s, Jean Prouvé began to work more extensively with wood due to the the scarcity of metal during World War II. Constructed from a tabletop in solid oak or American walnut and accompanied by Prouvé's signature curved legs in the same wood with bent sheet metal construction, the Gueridon Bas is a sturdy and extremely durable furniture item. Balancing a robust construction with an elegant silhouette, the Gueridon Bas is a versatile coffee table bringing a sense of warmth and vitality to its surrounding. 

The Prouvé Gueridon series also includes a dining table

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.
