EM Table by Jean Prouvé for Vitra in oak over black

“The designer and engineer Jean Prouvé developed the EM Table (Entretoise Métallique, metal struts) 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.” -text: Vitra
