“My father would have liked the new energy that this co-operation injects into his designs. He always wanted things to look fresh and crisp,” says Jean Prouvé’s daughter, Catherine Prouvé.
Tabouret Solvay (1941)
Table S.A.M. Tropique (1950)
The Prouvé family had worked closely with Vitra and G-Star across a span of 2 years on the collection, which includes the Cite lounge chair (1930), the Tabouret Solvay wooden stool (1941), and the Tabouret no. 307 stool (1951).

The pieces feature the muted colours of grey, cream and brown timber and retain the well-loved utilitarian aesthetic of the Prouvé originals.
