The story behind this product
Giving Jean Prouvé’s iconic Standard Chair a contemporary makeover, Vitra’s SP model adds a moulded plastic seat and back rest in a new range of carefully considered colours. Originally designed with weight distribution in mind, the Standard SP Chair features tubular steel front legs and voluminous hollow back legs to allow for the upper body weight to be transferred to the floor.
Meet the designer
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.View Designer
