About this designer: Jean Prouvé
Jean Prouvé
Born in 1901 in Paris, Jean Prouvé was trained as a blacksmith and eventually opened his own metal workshop in Nancy 1924. During World War II he was forced to diversify in to wooden furniture due to the scarcity of steel and helped to develop frame houses. Until his death in 1984 Prouvé was busy as a lecturer, architect and furniture designer. Prouvé is best known for his Standard Chair for Vitra, stocked by Aram Store

Description

Chairs take the most strain on their back legs, where they bear the weight of their user's upper body. Prouvé took this into account very succinctly in Standard Chair. Tubular steel piping is enough for the front legs that take relatively little strain, whereas the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections and pass the strain on to the floor. Designed in 1934, the Standard Chair is quintessentially a 20th Century design classic.
