Description

Vitra’s Standard SP Chair, designed by Jean Prouvé in 1934, has a special metal structure inspired by Prouvé’s engineering background. Because most of the sitter’s weight is carried by chair’s back legs, Prouvé decided to place large, hollow steel legs to the back and slim ones to the front of the chair. The seat of Standard SP (Siège en Plastique) chair is made of robust plastic in a fine palette of colours.

Jean Prouvé

Jean Prouvé (1909–1984) was a French metal artisan, engineer and self-taught architect and designer, who had a great influence on European post-war design and design philosophy. Social conscience and easy accessibility were essential starting points for Prouvé’s designs, which were often based on prefabricated housing, modular systems and mass-production. 

Prouvé opened his own workshop in Nancy, France in 1924, and later expanded it into a furniture factory. Prouvé’s designs were widely used in French public institutes, and his prefabricated houses known as 'Maison Tropicale' were also sent to French colonies in Africa in mid-twentieth century. His background as a metal worker and engineer characterizes his best known designs, such as the Standard chair and Em table currently produced by Vitra.
