Description

Wooden chair with thick back legs

The Chaise Tout Bois chair by Vitra is the only chair made entirely from wood by the French constructor and designer Jean Prouvé. Visually, the chair corresponds to the iconic Standard chair, whose metal base was replaced by one made of wood due to the lack of metal in World War II.

The shape of the Chaise Tout Bois chair is mainly due to the thickness of the back legs. The rear legs and backrest supports hold the greatest load when sitting, which is why Prouvé designed these elements to be particularly thick and thus emphasized their appearance.

Made of oak without any screws

During the war, several prototypes of the chair were made to test the strength, connections, position of the legs and the attachment of the back and seat. The type of wood used was dependent on the respective availability. After the war, oak, which was used in France for the construction of cathedral roofs and boats because of its hardness and stability, was sufficiently available again. And because the properties are also ideal for a solid wood chair, the Chaise Tout Bois finally made from oak and plywood - also in dark stained versions at the request of Jean Prouvé's customers.

The Chaise Tout Bois chair by Vitra is based on a design from 1941 that works without screws. Height and seat geometry correspond to the chair's standard and thus today's requirements.
