At the beginning of the 1950s Prouve designed the EM Table for the "Maison Tropique" project. With every single detail governed by its construction, the table follows the aesthetics of necessity. The EM Table illustrates the force vectors and static connections more commonly seen in the context of civil engineering works. Powder-coated moulded sheet steel base in black or cream with oak veneer table top in either natural wood or stained dark oak. EM Table comes in two lengths, 200cm and 250cm to allow more sitting room for guests. EM table works well as a dining table, office desk or as a boardroom meeting table. The Standard chair, also by Jean Prouve, was designed to compliment the EM Table. Hardwearing and robust, the EM Table is a beautiful statement piece.
