Jean Prouve



Vitra's Standard SR Chair is a re-edition of a classic chair by engineer and designer Jean Prouvé. SR stands for siège rembourré which translates as upholstered seat in English. With the padded cushion seat comfort is enhanced, making the SR chair ideal for long family get-togethers or use as an occasional office seat. The fabric cover is available in numerous colours and the chair base also comes in a choice of hues. Other variants of the chair available are the Standard Chair and the Standard SP chair.

The Standard chair was originally designed by Prouvé in 1934 for the University of Nancy in France. It was engineered for longevity with a robust plywood seat and back and thick tubular rear legs to widely spread the weight of the user to the floor. In creating the Standard chair Prouvé made not only one of the most recognisable pieces of mid century design, but also defined an aesthetic approach which informs much of his furniture.

This chair is upholstered with Vitra's own-brand fabric Volo - developed for the perfect balance of comfort and longevity. Volo is a finely structured wool blend with a refined weave that gives it an elegant appearance. This expressive textile shows strong solid colours to full advantage while simultaneously offering pleasant tactile qualities. With its soft look and appealing texture, Volo is a perfect fit for home interiors, but it is also well suited for use in the contract sector. Volo is available in 17 colours.

Jean Prouvé (1901-84) was a self-taught French architect and furniture maker. Prouvé believed that design was a moral issue. He championed mass-produced pieces for the public sector and created chairs, stools and desks for hospitals, schools and government departments.
