The seat and backrest of the Standard Chair by Jean Prouvé are available in various types of robust wood, and the chair‘s striking metal frame comes in different colours
Standard – Vitra
Designed by Jean Prouve. Chairs take the most stress on their back legs, where they bear the weight of the user’s upper body. The engineer, architect and designer Jean Prouvé incorporated this simple insight in his design for the Standard Chair: while steel tubing suffices for the front legs, since they are subject to less stress, the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections that transfer the primary weight to the floor.
Standard comes in a classic version with seat and back in wood or in the models Standard SP with seat and back in robust plastic and Standard SR with upholstery.
