This is one of a few prototypes which were handbuild at the Vitra Workshop for the reedition of Jean Prouves
Granito table in 2002. As far as we know the only existing copy which has a black Granito top worldwide. We
purchased this copy from a Prouve Collector in Hamburg, Germany. Moreover, there are a few, very rare copies with
a pink Granito Top. We have the great fortune to offer also such a copy of the Granito table with a pink stone-top.
Shortly after release the Prouve Collection in 2002, the Granito table vanishes completely from the market. Prouve
designed the table in 1945-1950 for the Flavigny Sanatoria in France. Also from the original tables of this period only
a few survived.

Concerning our copy, which were released in 2002, it has to be said that the table was much to complicated to handle, due
to the heavy granite-stone top and also to expensive to introduce it successfully to the market. Vitra decides to stop the
manufacturing of the tables within a very short period of time and only a few handmade items were completed, for the lack of
dealers and costumers demand.

Condition: The table is in fantastic condition, with a very Fine soft polished stone surface. A real beautiful condition,
nearly like fresh out of the workshop. A unique and very scarce piece of design history! Collectors item!
