Vitra Standard Chair
Designer: Jean Prouve 1934/50
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
Chairs take the most strain on their back legs where they bear the weight of their user's upper body. Prouve took this into account very succinctly in Standard Chair. Tubular steel piping is enough for the front legs that take relatively little strain wheras the back legs are made of larger hollow sections which pass the strain on to the floor.
