Product description

Chaise Tout Bois is the only chair of the French "builder" and designer Jean Prouvé made entirely of wood. The design is very similar to the famous Standard seat de Prouvé, but the metal base was replaced by wood due to a shortage of metal during World War II.
The shape of the Chaise Tout Bois expresses the intention of Prouvé to provide greater resistance to the transition point between the seat and the backrest, where the weight of the load of the human anatomy is greatest. The profile of the rear frame section - rear legs and back support - refers to this load transfer and is a typical feature of Prouvé designs, both in its furniture and in the field of architecture.
Prouvé created several prototypes of this chair during the war in order to test its structural strength as well as the joints, the position of the legs and the connection between the seat and the backrest. The type of wood chosen depended on what was available at the time. After the war, there was again a sufficient supply of oak wood which, due to its hardness and strength, was normally used in France to build ships and cathedral roofs. As these properties are also ideal for a wooden chair, the Chaise Tout Bois was finally made from oak and plywood (dark-stained versions were also made when requested by Jean Prouvé's clients).
The Chaise Tout Bois de Vitra it corresponds to one of Jean Prouvé's design variants from 1941, the construction of which does not require a single screw. The height and geometry of the seat are the same as the Standard chair, so it meets current standards and requirements. The warm look of the wood contrasts with the practical structural design typical of the Prouvé functional approach.
Details: Chaise Tout Bois chair made of natural oak with protective varnish. Seat height 46 cm.
