While the name suggests something of an inferiority complex, the Standard Chair (designed in 1934 by Jean Prouve) demonstrated a brand new way of combining bent plywood with steel. A smooth plywood seat and back sit atop a unique steel base, with tubular front legs and wedges of sheet steel for the back. The understated yet innovative structure is replicated in 1:6 scale in the Vitra Miniature Standard Chair.
