Concept

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.

Materials
Powder-coated sheet steel and round steel frame. Seat and backrest in untreated oak or oak with dark stain, varnished for natural wood effect.
