Chaise Tout Bois
Chaise Tout Bois is the only chair by the French 'constructeur' and designer Jean Prouvé that is made entirely out of wood. The design is very similar to Prouvé's famous Standard chair, but wood was substituted for the metal base due to the scarcity of metal during the Second World War. The form of the Chaise Tout Bois articulates Prouvé's intention to provide added strength at the transition point between the seat and backrest, where the load weight of the human anatomy is greatest. The profile of the rear frame section – back legs and backrest support – makes reference to this load transfer and is a typical characteristic of Prouvé's designs for both furniture and architecture.
Chaise Tout Bois by Vitra corresponds to one of Jean Prouvé's design variants from 1941, whose construction does not require a single screw. The height and seat geometry are the same as those of the Standard chair and thus meet current norms and requirements. The warm look and feel of wood contrasts appealingly with the practical structural design, which is typical of Prouvé's functional approach.
Chaise Tout Bois is available in light oak or dark-stained oak.
seat and backrest: moulded plywood veneer in natural or dark-stained oak, protective natural lacquer finish.
base: non-stackable solid wood base; same type of wood as backrest and seat in natural or dark-stained oak, protective natural lacquer finish.
46 x 49 x h 80,5 cm (seat height: 46 cm)
