Product description

Chairs take the most stress on their back legs, where they bear the weight of the user’s upper body. Jean Prouvé illustrated this simple insight in his distinctive design for the Standard Chair: while tubular steel suffices for the front legs, since they bear a relatively light load, the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections that transfer the primary stress to the floor.

Standard SP (Siège en Plastique) builds a bridge from past to present, giving this iconic chair a contemporary look without altering its form: made of robust plastic, the seat surface and backrest of Standard SP come in a variety of finely modulated colour shades. The plastic parts can be combined in different colours and are easy to exchange or replace. The bases have a durable, powder-coated matte finish to match the plastic surfaces. These attractive new features also make Standard SP an economical seating option. To complement the Standard SP chair, the EM Table by Jean Prouvé is available in a new version with tops made of HPL and bases with a powder-coated matte finish in the same colour options as the chair.
