Solvay Table
Description
Infused with industrial inspiration, Jean Prouvé’s table was designed as part of his studio’s 1941-42 commission for the Solvay Chemical company. Its construction prioritizes wood, as metals were scarce during the War. Despite these limitations, Prouvé’s streamlined design displays his timeless structural principles: The substantial, solid wood rectangular top is supported by an architectonic array of fin-like legs, joined by a black, powder-coated steel stretcher. Available in natural oak, dark smoked oak, or American walnut, it makes a handsome focal point for your dining room or library. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in the Museum’s collection.

Jean Prouvé was trained as a metal artisan before expanding his work to include the full panoply of design—from letter openers to lighting to prefabricated houses. His designs encompass nearly everything that lends itself to industrial fabrication. He opened his first workshop in 1924 and, by 1947, had his own factory. Prouvé is also known for serving as the chairman of the committee that selected Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers’ design for the Centre Pompidou in 1971. Ten examples of Prouvé’s work are included in MoMA’s collection.
