A model 504 or Flavigny dining table by Jean Prouvé, who originally designed this table in 1945 for the Flavigny sanatorium.

Jean Prouve originally designed this model 504 table in 1945 for the Monastere de Flavigny and is also known as “granito” or Flavigny table. The table tops of the first models were fragile and most of the time cracked or broke, so in the 1970s the design was modified by Prouvé to accomodate a thicker, more sturdy composite stone table top where this table, with folded sheet steel legs and tubular streamlined understructure, is supported by. 

The pictured model 305 ‘Metropole' chair by Prouvé is also available @Bloomberry
