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.
The Standard chair by Jean Prouvé has evolved into one of the most famous classics of the French 'constructeur'. The seat and backrest of this understated, iconic chair are available in various types of wood, and the metal frame comes in different colours.
Side chair with seat and back in oak or walnut with a frame in bent sheet and tubular steel in a smooth powder-coated finish.
