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.
