"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.
Like the original, our Prouve Standard chair designer replica is likewise well engineered and offers a distinct aesthetic. The replica Standard chair’s rear legs look almost aeronautic, and the smooth rolling seat edge offers a softer curve and comfortable seat. Prouve’s Standard’s design was grounded in practicality, balance and durability and we have thoughtfully applied these same ideas to our design. This chair is a modern classic and is featured in design museums throughout the world.
Our designer replica chair, inspired by the Prouve Standard chair is offered at a much more reasonable price than a designer original. At this price, not only can you afford to replace your worn out dining chairs, but you can buy a few extra for when you require extra seating.Like the original, our replica Standard is robust, functionally and versatile, the Relax House replica Standard Chair works equally well in domestic settings or as public seating in cafés and restaurants. This chair is exceptionally sturdy and durable making it a welcome addition to your restaurant or café’s dining room. The chairs legs are constructed from powder coated steel and the seat and back are moulded plywood with an American Oak veneer.
