The distinctive look of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec's Vegetal chair took four years and countless prototypes to evolve from idea to production. One long-standing employee of Vitra claimed it was one of the most complicated projects he had ever worked on! The aim was to create an organic looking chair that resembles natural vegetation without compromising strength, stability and comfort.
The chair is made from plastic injection, fibre-reinforced recyclable polyamide and is available in six colours. The colour options are less vibrant than other plastic chairs which emphasises the desire to replicate structures found in nature. This versatile chair can be stacked up to three chairs high and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
