This table is well suited for both the domestic setting and for the furnishing of cafés and restaurants.

Jean Prouvé

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984) was a self-taught architect and designer who first apprenticed as a blacksmith and metalsmith. He grew up in Nancy, France surrounded by the ideals and energy of "l'École de Nancy," the art collective to which his father, Victor Prouvé, belonged. Its goals were to make art readily accessible, to forge links between art and industry, as well as between art and social consciousness. It would have a powerful influence on him. His designs reveal knowledge of the materials at hand, a commitment to collaboration between artists and craftsmen, and an attention to evolving technical developments. In 1947 he built the Maxéville factory where he produced furniture and undertook extensive architectural research on the uses of aluminum. Though he used sheet metal extensively, he rejected the use of steel tubing which was popular with the concurrent Bauhaus movement.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra's approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.

Exceptional Table
Mark, more than a month ago.
The table is perfect – dark rich walnut, simple, elegant, timeless design, and very solid/sturdy. Completely appreciate why this table is considered a classic and coveted by many.

NOTE: Shipping experience was less than ideal. The 8-12 week delivery timeframe in the description is inaccurate and should be updated. I ordered the table on 2/16. It arrived on 7/3, 19 weeks and 4 days later. Almost a 2 month discrepancy. While waiting for the table, I asked Hive to obtain an update on delivery. The response was “We do not have a Vitra wholesale contact who can take calls….” To not have a contact at Vitra is unbelievable. And so, I contacted Vitra directly via email who provided more details on the shipping status of my order.
