This Guéridon bas with a Comblanchien limestone top is a rare version of the Guéridon bas GB 21 designed by JEAN PROUVÉ. With its subtle light beige colour and light wood, the low table constitutes a delicate addition to an interior.
The few examples of the Guéridon bas that were first designed during the Second World War as a low table for the Visiteur armchair underwent slight variations in size and detailing over the years. As for the other pieces of furniture Prouvé designed at that time, metal was kept to a minimum due to material shortages. Its use is here limited to a triangular bent steel armature, which three bolted sections grip three slotted and notched solid wood legs.
The idea behind the construction of its frame was that the top “should not influence the construction of the piece.”
Clearly identified in the sales catalogs of the time as a demountable piece of furniture, the Guéridon bas was initially offered in two heights and tabletop diameters in glass, marble or wood.
