    Jean Prouve (1901-1984), a French iron smith turned industrial architect and designer, created several modern buildings and furniture pieces during his life time. One of his most recognized icons of modern design is the Standard Chair. Jean Prouve understood the relationships between material, structure and form. His Standard Chair chair uses the frame as its main structure. The forces of resistance are concentrated in the centers of two fin-shaped spines that serve as the rear legs and supports for the back of the chair. Jean Prouve found that these spines were able to disperse stress uniformly through the legs and the back. To them he attached a frame for the seat and the front legs. Robust and functionally versatile, the Standard Chair works equally well in domestic settings or as public seating in cafes and restaurants.

    Le Corbusier once said that Jean Prouve was "indissolubly an architect and an engineer, since everything he touches and designs immediately takes on an elegant, beautiful form while he finds brilliant solutions to resistance and manufacturing."

    Prominently displayed in the permanent collection of modern design at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
