"Prouvé combines the soul of an engineer with that of an architect" -Le Corbusier

Prouve’s Standard chair was an instant classic. It seemed like a rather simple, straightforward design but there were many innovative ideas at play. The design of most chairs puts most of the sitting load on a chair's back legs, where they bear the weight of their user’s upper body. Prouvé understood this in his design and construction of the Standard Chair. He used tubular steel piping for the front legs because they take relatively little strain, whereas the back legs, where the bulk of a person’s weight rests, were made of voluminous hollow sections and distribute weight in a more suitable way.
