Chair by Jean Prouvé

With his standard chair, Jean Prouvé created a great furniture classic: originally designed in 1934, the French revised the chair in 1950. Today Vitra reinterprets the chair and transfers it to the present.

The load on a chair is greatest on the rear legs, where it has to absorb the weight of the upper body. The designer and designer Jean Prouvé implemented this simple insight in a succinct manner in the Standard chair: While a steel tube is sufficient for the weakly loaded front legs, the rear legs of the chair are designed as voluminous hollow bodies that pass the load on to the floor

Symbol of Prouvé's architectural design approach

The standard is a symbol for Prouvé's architectural design approach: The chair follows the rules of practicality and openly shows its construction. The materials are just as timeless as the construction: Vitra produces the Prouvé standard chair out of steel and wood. The chair is available in different colors.
