"Prouvé combines the soul of an engineer with that of an architect" -Le Corbusier

It would be difficult to find another table in 20th century furniture design that matches the striking image of Trapeze. Its name refers to the distinctive shape of the table's paired legs. Together with the thick, obliquely canted edges of the tabletop, they give visual emphasis to the construction's stability.

Trapeze works well as a dining table, and also as a conference or work table.

Technical description:
Legs and central traverse made of black lacquered sheet steel. Tabletop with black laminate finish.

Lacquered steel, black laminate top.

Just like the Antony Chair, Trapèze was originally designed for the Cité Universitaire at Antony. Its name references the table's two strikingly shaped legs made of sheet steel. Together with the tabletop's broad edges beveled outwards, they underscore the construction's solid appearance solidity.
