Jean Prouvé's table for the flying club in Doncourt-les-Conflans (1938). Square top with yellow melamine veneer, resting on curved, black-lacquered metal legs and a double base with chrome-plated aluminium fibre fins.
The Meurthe-et-Moselle archives indicate that this furniture was destroyed during the second World War, at the same time as the flying club.
The former owner of the refreshment room managed to salvage a few pieces before the bombing, and keep them for his personal use.
The flying club was rebuilt in 1953 by Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier, but there was no new commissioning of furniture.
