Fauteuil de Salon Chair by Vitra

Fauteuil de Salon Chair


Designed by Jean Prouvé. Fauteuil de Salon joins simple planes into a unified architectural object with a comfortable seat surface and backrest. Rediscovered in the archives of the French engineer Jean Prouvé, the armchair has been updated in a contemporary colour palette.
With oiled, solid wood armrests and the designer's characteristic structural aesthetic, the Fauteuil de Salon can be ideally combined with other pieces in the Prouvé Collection.

The colours Prouvé developed for the steel elements of his furniture (and his architecture) drew on various references – from his Blé Vert, which describes the colour of young green wheat, to Gris Vermeer, which alludes to the grey tones in the work of the painter Johannes Vermeer.
According to Prouvé, who believed in the ‘nature of a material’, only parts in danger of corroding should be painted, which is why he left wooden and aluminium elements in an untreated state whenever possible.


Seat and backrest: polyurethane filling; leather or fabric cover. Armrests: solid wood with oiled finish; natural oak, smoked oak or American walnut. Base: bent sheet steel and tubular steel, powder-coated (smooth). Glides: hard glides for carpet or felt glides for hard floors.
