With every single detail governed by its construction, the EM Table follows the aesthetics of necessity. It illustrates the force vectors and static connections more commonly seen in the context of civil engineering works.
A natural oiled wood table top is combined with a moulded sheet steel base, creating a distinctive interplay of materials, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dining table that will last for generations to come.
Jean Prouve was born into an artistic family in Nancy, France. Prouve trained as a metalsmith before attending engineering school in Nancy, and his intimate knowledge of metal remained the foundation of his work and career.
After opening his own workshop in 1923, Prouve began producing modern metal furniture of his own design as well as collaborating with some of the best-known French designers of the day, including Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand.
