Design Story

At first glance one is inclined to view the Vitra MVS Chaise as a minimalist object. And certainly when it comes to reduction it seems to be hard to beat: the sleek, black finish of the rectangular shell is connected to an equally simple frame formed from only one piece of chrome plated tubular steel. However, taking a closer look at the Vitra MVS Chaise one realizes what the Vitra chaise lounge has to offer with all the reduction: comfort. The soft, elastic material adapts to the body shape of the user and thus provides the largest possibly support. In addition, thanks to the cleverly constructed undercarriage you can effortlessly switch between a sitting and lying position simply by shifting your body weight accordingly. Furthermore, the elegant MVS Chaise can also be used outdoors. As a sun lounger. Obviously.
