The aesthetic appearance of Jean Prouvé’s EM Table adheres to structural principles, illustrating the flow of forces and stresses in its construction. It comes in a range of sizes with table tops in premium solid wood or HPL laminate in a choice of colours
The designer and engineer Jean Prouvé developed the EM Table around 1950 for the project ‘Maison Tropicale’. Adhering to the aesthetics of necessity, even the smallest details of this table are determined by its construction. The canted legs are connected by a crossbar, illustrating the structural forces and flow of stresses in a way that is typically seen only in engineering structures.
