Description

Designed in 1934 the Standard Chair is one of the quiet classics of history of design. Prompted by the furniture competition for the Cité Universitaire of Nancy, Prouvé worked on designs combining metal and wood during the early thirties.

He utilised the strength of steel for the base of Standard Chair. The back and the seat however, which come in direct contact with the sitter's body, are formed out of plywood. The quality of this chair is revealed in its structure and unassuming aesthetics.

 Jean Prouvé - portrait panels_web_designer_filter

Jean Prouvé, who regarded himself as an engineer throughout his lifetime, was both the designer and manufacturer of his product ideas. His unique oeuvre, ranging from a letter opener to door and window fittings, from lighting and furniture to prefabricated houses and modular building systems, encompasses almost anything that is suited to industrial production and construction.

Brand

Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
