The Vitra Flavigny Table was originally designed by Jean Prouvé as part of a project for the Solvay chemical company in 1945 as a meeting table. The first production run was used at the Flavigny Sanatorium, which gave the table its name. The appeal of this table lies in the contrasts between the domestic nature of the wooden top and the strict functional design of the base. Typical of Prouvé's work, the base features four tapered legs positioned at a 45° angle on the outermost corners of the table top. This not only adds stability to the steel frame construction but also provides users with maximum legroom.
Available in three finishes - natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut - all with an oiled finish - the base has a smooth powder coated finish in deep black with leg tips made of robust, polished aluminium to protect against dirt and scuffing. The glides (feet) can be adjusted within a range of 10mm to accommodate uneven floors.
