Description

Jean Prouvé's EM Table (1950) exhibits a dynamic relationship between the base and tabletop, following in the footsteps of such iconic designs as the Parsons table, the Eames Round Table and Le Corbusier's glass-topped table. Made of sheet metal, each tapered leg is turned out and angled on a diagonal slant to distribute the downward flow of energy on the table, making an incredibly sturdy surface for working or dining. The tabletop is finished in smooth oak veneer and lends a warm counterpoint to the table's mechanical efficiency. Reproduced to exacting standards by Vitra. Made in Germany.
