Table Solvay

Dining tables from Vitra, Designed by Jean Prouvé

Product description

During the years of 1941 and 1942, the Ateliers Jean Prouvé planned and executed a number of interior design projects for the Solvay chemical company. Numerous pieces of furniture were developed in connection with this commission, including a table made of wood that exemplifies Prouvé’s construction methods: its structural details illustrate the interplay of forces and stresses – similar to the later design of the EM Table, whose metal legs distinguish it from its predecessor. Due to the scarcity of metal during World War II, the Table Solvay was designed and constructed with wooden legs.
The solid wood components and fine oiled finish of the Table Solvay give it a sense of ease and refinement, mitigating the technical coolness of its design.

Table top: 34 mm thick solid wood with oiled finish; natural oak, core smoked oak or American walnut.
Base: legs matched to table top, solid wood with oiled finish in natural oak, core smoked oak or American walnut; tubular steel crossbar with powder-coated finish (smooth).

H 740 x B 900 x L 2400 mm


Tabouret Solvay bears the unmistakable signature of Jean Prouvé, reflecting an aesthetic based on structural requirements. The sturdy stool is available in natural oak, dark oak or American walnut.
