Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2008. Fiberglass reinforced polyamide, polyurethane, aluminum. Made in Germany by Vitra. With its harmonious, curved, protective shape, the Softshell Chair exudes a great sense of home. the single-section organic shell together with the concealed structure of the flexible backrest and the seamless upholstery provides extraordinarily great sitting comfort with longevity. On one hand the Softshell chair's design enables personal privacy. On the other, it also supports conversation in a family dining setting - or communication structures in a home office. The two brothers, Ronan and Erwan, have been working together since 1999. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. They were named ?"Creator of the Year" in 2002, elected ?"designer of the year" in 2003 and have won multiple other awards. Their creations have been exhibited in many collective or solo exhibitions and are part of some permanent museum collections around the world. The four-star base features an aluminum base with swivel and pneumatic spring. Thanks to the various different upholstery materials, colors, and bases, the individual elements of the Softshell Chair are very flexible. It is just as suitable for conference and visitor areas, temporary workstations and home offices as it is for the dining table - either at home or in a restaurant. 32.75" h | 24.25" w | 22.25" d | seat: 17.25" h.
