The Bastille Cafe Rectangular Dining Table is inspired by Jean Prouve's iconic EM Table, which debuted in the early 1950's as part of a prefab housing project in France, called "Maison Tropique". The EM Table was defined by a uniquely styled base consisting of four tapered steel legs which were angled slightly outward to create a symmetrical yet juxtaposed stance, connected by tubed steel. The industrial styling of the legs is an element that Prouve adapted to other pieces, and has become a signature element in his works.
The Bastille Cafe Rectangular Dining Table has a galvanized steel frame & top that preserves the balance of form defined by the original EM Table. Abrasion detail and surface markings create a chic worn-industrial look, and a zinc finish is applied for rust resistance. The Bastille is well-prepared to accommodate your guests and functions just as well as a desk in your office or home office.
The Bastille Cafe Rectangular Dining Table w/ Wood Top is an inspired reproduction of Jean Prouve's famed EM Table. Originally developed in the early 1950's for a prefab housing project in France called "Maison Tropique", the EM Table featured an industrial-styled base whose angled vector leg design created a utilitarian aesthetic synonymous with civil engineering. Prouve adapted this concept to other works and it has become a signature element seen in his contributions to 20th century design.
The Bastille Cafe Rectangular Dining Table w/ Wood Legs features an authentically styled black powder-coated solid steel base, and a beautifully textured Ash wood top with a natural finish. Available in two sizes, the Bastille is well-prepared to accommodate your guests in classic mid-century / industrial form, and functions equally as well as a desk in your office or home office.
