Jean Prouve Granito / Flavigny Prototype Table

Lot 0272 Details

Description
Jean Prouve (1901-1984) Granito / Flavigny handbuilt Vitra Workshop prototype table. The form was originally designed for the Monastere de Flavigny, Sanatorium in 1945 and put into wider production in the 1950s. The table tops of the original models were fragile and in the 1970s the design was modified to accommodate a thicker, more sturdy composite stone table top. The French designed table is one of a few prototypes hand-built at the Vitra Workshop in 2002 for the re-edition of a Jean Prouve "Granito" also known as the "Flavigny" table. Our research indicates only a few copies ever were manufactured worldwide. Soon after release of the Prouve Collection in 2002, the Granito table vanishes completely from the market. The table was much too complicated to handle, due to the heavy granite-stone top and also too expensive to introduce it successfully to the market. Vitra decided to stop the manufacturing of the table within a very short period of time and so only a few handmade tables were completed, which were used for exhibitions, top dealer showrooms and for promotional photos. Measures 29.7 inches high, 28.5 inches wide, 79.2 inches long. Composite stone and enameled steel. In good condition. Extremely heavy.
