In the early 1940s, Jean Prouvé began to work more extensively with wood. The Guéridon Bas table has a heavy top in oak veneer that rests on three solid oak legs. These elements are joined together by a construction made out of bent sheet metal. Guéridon Bas is also available in dark stained oak, harking back to an original version made of tropical wood called ‚Table Africaine‘.
