The Vitra Standard chair was originally designed by Architect Jean Prouvé in 1934 for the University of Nancy in France. It was engineered for longevity with a robust plywood seat and back and thick tubular rear legs to widely spread the weight of the user to the floor. In creating the Standard chair Prouvé made not only one of the most recognisable pieces of mid century design, but also defined an aesthetic approach which informs much of his furniture. 

Available with three different moulded plywood seat and back finishes and a variety of base colours. The Standard chair is also available with a coloured plastic seat and back - the Standard SP Chair.

Jean Prouvé (1901-84) was a self-taught French architect, engineer and furniture maker. Prouvé believed that design was a moral issue. He championed mass-produced pieces for the public sector and created chairs, stools and desks for hospitals, schools and government departments.
