Designed by Jean Prouvé.
At the beginning of the 1950s Prouvé designed the EM Table for the Maison Tropique project. With every single detail governed by its construction, the table follows the aesthetics of necessity. It illustrates the force vectors and static connections in a way that is otherwise only familiar in the context of civil engineering works.
The colours Prouvé developed for the steel elements of his furniture (and his architecture) drew on various references – from his Blé Vert, which describes the colour of young green wheat, to Gris Vermeer, which alludes to the grey tones in the work of the painter Johannes Vermeer.
According to Prouvé, who believed in the ‘nature of a material’, only parts in danger of corroding should be painted, which is why he left wooden and aluminium elements in an untreated state whenever possible.
