Thanks to its plant-like form the Vitra Vegetal chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec appears as if it has been taken directly from nature. The slender struts resembling the sprouting branches of a tree or shrub, make the Vitra multi-purpose chair an exciting seating option for the living area, garden or terrace.

Design Story

The Vitra Vegetal chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec is a charming seating which draws attention to itself in the living room, in the garden or on the terrace. The Vitra multi-purpose chair presents itself in a plant-like configured seat, which merges directly into the four chair legs, a construction principle which creates the visual impression that the legs have grown out of the seat. Visually reminiscent of the sprouting branches of a tree or shrub the struts of the seat shell also similarly generate an impression of transparency and lightness thanks to the spaces between them. The Vitra Vegetal chair cuts a very good figure in any domestic or commercial location, but is, naturally, predestined for use in the garden, on the balcony and other outdoor arenas.
