Jean Prouve Antony Chair - the minimalist lounger

Vitra_prouve Perhaps lacking the upholstery you might expect from a lounger, the Antony Chair by Jean Prouve does make amends with a really striking design.

The lack of soft seating might be a problem for some, but the sloping natural oak back and seat should still  offer a comfortable place to kill some time. And in contrast to that wood is a lacquered sheet & tubular steel frame - available in either cream or black.

It's a chair with a heritage too - designed in 1954 (one of Prouve's later designs) for the cité universitaire at Antony near Paris, it's very much a forerunner for many examples of corporate or institutional seating that followed. Reissued by Vitra, it retails for £709.
