During the years of 1941 and 1942, the Ateliers Jean Prouvé planned and executed a number of interior design projects for a chemical company in France. Numerous pieces of furniture were developed in connection with this commission, including a table made of wood that exemplifies Prouvé’s construction methods: its structural details illustrate the interplay of forces and stresses – similar to the later design of the EM Table, whose metal legs distinguish it from its predecessor. Due to the scarcity of metal during World War II, the “Table Salle à Manger Bois” was designed with wooden legs, leading to the name Table S.A.M. Bois. Table S.A.M. Bois by Jean Prouvé adds a high-quality, inviting touch to cafeterias, meeting rooms or central spaces in open-plan office environments.
