vitra Coconut Chair

Designed by George Nelson, 1955

The Coconut is a typical 1950s design – it stands out for its humorous touch, formal clarity and minimal use of materials.Designed by George Nelson in 1955, Nelson himself compared it with a coconut cut into eight parts, and inverted the coconut’s colours: the plastic seat shell is white, while the single-section upholstery comes in a variety of colours. This return to the natural spatial shape of a shell enabled Nelson to create an inviting, comfortable armchair that offers users the freedom to sit in countless different positions. White fibreglass-reinforced plastic shell with upholstered seat available in leather or fabric.
