The Fauteuil Direction metal-framed armchair was first designed by French designer Jean Prouvé in 1951. It features triangular back legs bent from steel to support weight where it's most needed and wood armrests mounted on a tubular metal frame.

Here's more information from Nest.co.uk:


Part of the recent Prouvé RAW collection from Vitra and G-Star, the Fauteuil Direction chair is a classic item, reinvented for a modern audience.

The Prouvé RAW collection was an exclusive collaboration between Vitra and fashion house G-Star which saw 17 of Prouvé’s designs re-imagined with a fresh colour palette and revised functionality.

The Fauteuil Direction balances industrial architectural forms with exceptional comfort, making the best use of Prouvé’s preferred material: sheet steel. Prouvé’s characteristic design principles of championing honest materials and employing a democratic approach to design were closely followed with the re-introduction of the Fauteuil Direction and careful consideration was taken over the colour. Prouvé’s daughter, Catherine Prouvé, helped refine the colour palette of aluminium, charcoal and gunmetal grey – a shade which was a personal favourite of her fathers.
