Tabouret Solvay Stool

Designed by Jean Prouvé, 1941

Tabouret Solvay is a simple, robust stool made of solid wood that reveals the designer’s signature at first glance: its clear structural principles can be found throughout the work of Jean Prouvé. Thanks to the flat, even the surface of the seat, Tabouret Solvay can also be used as a small side table.

Designed for the Solvay Chemical company in 1941-42, Jean Prouvé’s tabouret prioritizes wood, as metals were scarce during the War. Despite these limitations, the streamlined design is infused with Prouvé’s timeless structural principles: The circular seat is supported by an architectonic array of fin-like legs, joined by black, powder-coated steel hardware. Available in natural oak, dark smoked oak, or American walnut, the handsomely sturdy design can be used as a low stool or cocktail table between two lounge chairs. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in the Museum’s collection.
