Design Jean Prouvé, 1934/1950
Powder-coated sheet & tubular steel frame, ASA plastic (fine textured) seat/back
Made in Germany by Vitra

Chairs take the most stress on their back legs, where they bear the load of their user's upper body. The engineer, architect and designer Jean Prouvé illustrates this simple insight in his design for the Standard Chair: while tubular steel suffices for the front legs that bear relatively little weight, the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections and transfer the stress to the floor.

Standard SP (Siège en Plastique) brings the iconic chair up-to-date without changing anything about its form: A seat and backrest of robust plastic in a carefully chosen color palette gives Standard SP a contemporary look. To match the plastic surface, the bases feature a resistant, matt powder coating.

Jean Prouvé (1901-1984), architect, engineer and designer, was endeavored for using highly-developed technologies for metal processing to achieve innovative constructions and forms in his design and architecture work. He played a decisive part in developing construction techniques using light-weight prefabricated parts in architecture, making use, among other things, of insights from the airplane and automotive industry. In his Ateliers Jean Prouvé, the company he founded in 1947, he started not only producing light-weight components but also his own design drafts.

Standard SP chairs feature a powder-coated pressed sheet steel and tubular steel frame with ASA plastic (fine textured) seat and backrest in a variety of colors.
