Vitra’s Standard SP Chair, designed by Jean Prouvé in 1934, has a special metal structure inspired by Prouvé’s engineering background. Because most of the sitter’s weight is carried by chair’s back legs, Prouvé decided to place large, hollow steel legs to the back and slim ones to the front of the chair. The seat of Standard SP (Siège en Plastique) chair is made of robust plastic in a fine palette of colours.

Jean Prouvé (1909–1984) was a French metal artisan, engineer and self-taught architect and designer, who had a great influence on European post-war design and design philosophy. Social conscience and easy accessibility were essential starting points for Prouvé’s designs, which were often based on prefabricated housing, modular systems and mass-production.
