Vitra Table Solvay 180cm
Designer: Jean Prouve 1941
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
During the years of 1941 and 1942, Jean Prouve's studios planned and realised various interior design projects for the chemical company Solvay. Among his many designs of this time, there was also a wooden table that is a prime example of Prouve's creations: The necessities of statics and the force path are clearly reflected in his design details - similar to the later EM Table that differs from the Table Solvay due to its metal table legs.
Table Solvay's table top and base are made of solid oiled wood. This gives the table a high-quality, homely look and reduces the technical coolness of the design. Table-top and base are both made of the same wood. There are three different types of wood to choose from.
Materials: Table-top: solid wood, oiled; natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut. Base: to match the tabletop made of solid wood, oiled in natural oak, smoked oak or
American walnut. Tubular steel strut, powder-coated.
