Vitra Standard Dining Chair

Jean Prouve

The Vitra Standard chair, designed by Jean Prouvé in 1935, is a prime example of his working with thin steel sheet, a material he had long been looking for during his previous work with cast metal. Chairs take the most strain on their back legs, where they bear the weight of their user's upper body.

Designed By

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.
