Standard chair, 1934

Standard chair by Jean Prouve for Vitra.

Buy a set of six Vitra dining chairs between 1st November 2020 and 31st January 2021 and receive the sixth chair as a gift.*

The rear legs of a chair bear the majority of the weight of the user's body. Prouvé acknowledges this fact with characteristic succinctness in his design of the Standard Chair: the front legs take relatively little strain and therefore are made of tubular steel piping, while the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections that transmit the weight down to the floor.

The Vitra original selection offers a 10-year warranty.

*The least expensive chair will be free of charge. The following Vitra dining chairs are included in this offer (free combination possible): Eames shell chairs (excluding DSS, DSS-N, LAR, RAR, PACC and PSCC), Standard, Standard SP, Chaise Tout Bois, Panton Chair, Panton Chair Classic, Softshell chair, Moca chair, HAL (excluding swivel base), Tip Ton Chair, All Plastic Chair, .03 Chair and Belleville Chair.
