Product Story

Chairs take the most stress on their back legs, where they bear the weight of the user's upper body. The engineer and designer Jean Prouvé illustrated this simple insight in his distinctive design for the Standard chair: while steel tubing suffices for the front legs, since they bear a relatively light load, the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections that transfer the primary stress to the floor.
  • Standard SP (Siège en Plastique) builds a bridge from past to present, revisiting Prouvé's iconic Standard chair without altering its form: the seat surface and backrest in robust plastic give Standard SP a contemporary look.
  • Also available in different plastic and metal colours. To enquire please contact our in store team, or advice line: 0333 121 1915, Option 1.

Designed By Jean Prouvé

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Prouvé did not study architecture or design and instead trained as metal worker before opening his own workshop in Nancy in 1924. In the following years he created numerous furniture designs, and in 1947 Prouvé established his own factory with many of his pieces now produced exclusively by Vitra.
