Vitra: .05 Chair
This ingenious cantilevered chair traces its ancestry to the 1930s, but it was designer Maarten Van Severen who had the good sense to cushion the seat and back with integral polyurethane that adjusts to the sitter. Available in black, blue, gray, red and orange.
What a striking chair! It's plastic, so it can go indoors or out and it comes in multiple colors (green, red, brown, gray). It reminds me of the shadows that the palm trees make on my dining room wall in the morning.
For the modern child, the perfect chair for the perfect sale price of $69.00! It doesn't get better than this kids...
Whether used for a dining or an office setting, this technical piece is the perfect addition to add modern flare. Personally I prefer it with upholstery and don't think it takes anything away from its original design.
