Standard Chair by Jean Prouvé for Vitra

Chairs take the most stress on their back legs, where they bear the weight of the user's upper body. Architect, engineer, and designer Jean Prouvé incorporated this simple insight into his design of the Standard Chair. Since they are subjected to less stress, the front legs are steel tubing while the hind legs are made of voluminous hollow sections that transfer the primary weight to the floor.

Designer: Jean Prouvé, 1950
Manufacturer: Vitra
Dimensions: 16.5"w | 19.25"d | 32"h | seat height: 18.25"

Construction: The backrest and seat rest are available in oak (natural or dark finish) or walnut (dark pigmented finish). The frame is power-coated (Japanese Red, Deep Black, Chocolate, Coffee, and Ecru) pressed sheet and tubular steel.
