The Vitra Standard Chaise Tout Bois Dining Chair, was originally designed by legendary designer Jean Prouve during the Second World War. A sophisticated, inviting design, the robust dining chair was Prouve's only chair to be made entirely out of wood.
During the war several prototypes of the chair we made, testing the durability, leg positions and joint connections, the final result was a highly supportive, comfortable design that embodies strength and timeless simplicity.

Jean Prouvé completed his training as a metal artisan before opening his own workshop in Nancy in 1924. In the following years he created numerous furniture designs, this success enabled him to open his own factory in 1947. He left his mark on architectural history again in 1971, when he played a major role in selecting the design of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers for the Centre Pompidou as chairman of the competition jury. In close cooperation with the Prouvé family, Vitra began in 2002 to issue re-editions of his iconic and timeless designs.
