A Coffee Table by Jacques Hitier for Tubauto, 1950


Monolithe vintage by Emmanuelle Vidal

A 1950's coffee table by the French designer Jacques Hitier for Tubauto. The top in oak wood is resting on a frame in tubular black metal.

Graduated from Ecole Boulle, Jacques Hitier (1917-1999) got noticed by the brand Mobilor thanks to his school furniture in metal tubes : the company Tubauto will urge him to adapt them for housing. He enjoyed combining metal with natural materials like fabric or wood.
