Standard SP

Standard SP
by Vitra

Designed by
Jean Prouvé
for Vitra 1934

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 palette of finely modulated colours. The durable matt finish of the powder-coated bases matches the plastic surfaces of the chair.

The Standard Chair has evolved into one of the most famous classics of the French ‘constructeur’. The seat and backrest of this understated, iconic chair are available in various types of materials and finishes. Colour options give the iconic chair a classic and fresh modern look.

Chairs take the most stress on their back legs, where they bear the weight of the user’s upper body. The engineer, architect and designer Jean Prouvé incorporated this simple insight in his design for the Standard Chair: while steel tubing suffices for the front legs, since they are subject to less stress, the back legs are made of voluminous hollow sections that transfer the primary weight to the floor.
