Like the Antony chair, the Vitra Trapeze table was originally developed for the Cite Universitaire in Antony near Paris and numbers among the final pieces created by the French 'constructeur' Jean Prouvé in the area of furniture design. The name of the table refers to the distinctive shape of its paired legs, which are constructed from bent sheet steel. Together with the thick, obliquely canted edges of the table top, they emphasise the solid appearance of the construction.
Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.
