Vitra Vegetal Chair from Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec
The Vegetal Chair was designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra. A unique modern organic chair grown for living. 100% inspired by nature, the much anticipated Vegetal Chair is here! Vegetal is a new chair planted by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and grown by Vitra. The Vegetal Chair comes in 6 colors which are closelely related by the colors found in nature. The Vegetal Chair will blossom naturally in any living space indoors and out. No watering required. A refreshingly beautiful alternative to the common chair. Select from a wide variety of color finishes.
"As designers, it is our task to find new structures, new construction forms", explains Ronan Bouroullec with regard to his work: "And this chair is primarily structure and not just a motif". But how come the Vegetal Chair appears to be anything but an assembled construction, more like a single cast? A second inspiring idea which was the result of the Bouroullecs' intensive work with die casting mingled with the initial idea of the grown chair. "In the die casting process plastic shoots into the form like blood into veins", says Ronan, "and the finer and more branched the form is, the better the plastic is distributed." The brothers quickly had a clear image in mind. Delicate, round legs growing upwards, bending and branching into a ramified seat surface, meandering up and branching out again into back and armrests. When they first showed their sketchbook full of ideas to Vitra, the response was instantly enthusiastic.
This chair is made from durable weather-resistant polyamide plastic with a matte finish. It can be used both indoor and outdoors. Special UV-resistant additives slow down the fading process caused by ultraviolet rays. However, leaving the chair exposed to the sun for an extended period of time will eventually result in color changes. We do not recommend leaving the chair permanently outdoors in full sun.
