Design by Jean Prouvé, 1949.
Made in Germany by Vitra.

Originally designed for the University of Paris, Prouvé's Guéridon Table proves that modern tables do not have to be made of steel and glass. A variation on Prouvé's standard formal language, the Guéridon Table exhibits a distinctive and convincing structural clarity with architectural overtones.

The three-legged solid oak base is constructed for maximum stability, with each leg cut on the diagonal and slanting outward for equal weight distribution and balance. Steel bracing absorbs torsional stresses applied to the table and firmly secures the base. The durable tabletop is a smooth, low-maintenance surface for working or dining, with an oak veneer edge for a unified profile.

Vitra

Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).

Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.

Jean Prouvé

(1901-1984)

In the realms of design, architecture, and engineering, the Frenchman Jean Prouvé numbers among the most versatile and innovative figures of the 20th century. The central aim of his work as a designer was to fulfill the complex demands of series production with minimal material resources and simple modes of construction. In the process, he achieved aesthetically convincing solutions, particularly in the area of furniture design, for which he is accorded particular recognition and significance today.

Jean Prouvé regarded himself as a "constructeur" throughout his lifetime, yet he was also a businessman and the manufacturer of his own designs. His unique oeuvre — which ranges from a letter opener to lamps, furniture, door and window hardware, façade elements, prefabricated houses and modular buildings systems — encompasses almost every type of constructible object that is suited to industrial manufacturing methods.
