Vitra Chaise Tout Bois Chair
Vitra Chaise Tout Bois Chair by Jean Prouvé, 1941
The Vitra Chaise Tout Bois chair is the only chair by Jean Prouvé that is made entirely from 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.
After the war, there was once again a sufficient supply of oak, which due to its hardness and strength was commonly used in France to construct ships and cathedral roofs. As these properties are also ideal for an all-wood chair, the Chaise Tout Bois was ultimately made out of oak and plywood – also offered in dark-stained versions when requested by Jean Prouvé's customers.
