Standard chair

Jean Prouvé | Vitra


One of Jean Prouvé's most iconic designs, the Standard chair is an understated dining chair with a timeless aesthetic. It comprises a seat and backrest in wood and a metal frame in a choice of finishes.

Product Information
Distinctive in its side profile, the Standard chair was informed by Prouvé's understanding that chairs bear most of the weight in their back legs. This allows for slender steel tubing to be used for the front legs, while the angular, bent-steel back legs transfer most of the stress to the floor.

Produced today by Vitra, the Standard chairs were first developed in 1934 and went on to inspire further Prouvé designs, including the Chaise Tout Bois and Standard SP chair.

Seat and backrest:  oak (natural or dark finish) or walnut (black-pigmented finish). Base:  bent sheet steel and tubular steel, powder-coated finish (smooth).

Fitted with felt glides for hard floors as standard. Glides for carpet available upon request.
