For their Vitra Slow Chair the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec re-interpreted one of the more traditional furniture genres - the classic lounge chair. The Slow Chair is namely not elaborately upholstery, but features a steel tube frame over which an exactly formed knitted, resilient fabric is stretched. Thus the Slow Chair presents itself as a remarkably open and light object - and that without compromising on comfort and convenience. Aiding the Bouroullec lounge chair add a distinctive atmosphere are the four colour combinations of cover, pillow and frame.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created this expansive armchair by using an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. Thanks to its knit sling cover, Slow Chair combines soft comfort with ergonomic support, which is further enhanced by thin seat and back cushions.

Description

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created this expansive armchair by using an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. Thanks to the knit sling cover, the Slow Chair combines soft comfort with ergonomic support, which is further enhanced by thin seat and back cushions. The translucent sling cover replaces the thick cushions of traditional armchairs, resulting in a design that is lightweight, yet generously proportioned. The restrained appearance of the Slow Chair is equally appealing in the living room or conservatory, while offering unrestrained seating comfort.
