Vitra’s Standard 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. With its pleasantly shaped plywood seat and back, the Standard Chair makes an excellent dining chair, and its design matches fluently with the EM Table designed by Prouvé.
