Vitra Gueridon Bas Coffee Table
Designer: Jean Prouve, 1944
In the early 1940's, Jean Prouve began to work more extensively with wood. The Gueridon Bas table has a heavy top in solid oak or American walnut resting on three legs in the same wood. These elements are joined together by a robust construction made out of bent sheet metal. Gueridon Bas is also available in dark smoked oak, harking back to an original version crafted in tropical wood and known as the, Table Africaine'.
