Design Story


The Vitra ID Mesh is part of a collection of office chairs developed by the Italian designer Antonio Citterio for the Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra. With the Vitra ID Chairs Citterio set out to create a family of chairs that can respond to a range of different requirements and working conditions, within a unified system. Thus within the Vitra ID office chair collection - which includes in addition to the ID Mesh works such as, for example, the Vitra ID Trim and the Vitra ID Soft - one has a range of differing mechanisms, bases, covers, backrest and armrests, which can be combined to meet individual requirements. This design principle allows not only for variations in terms of aesthetics, materials and applications, but also leaves some room for manoeuvre in terms of price. The Vitra ID Mesh differs from the other Vitra ID office chairs in terms of its 3D mesh-covered frame construction, a construction which provides ventilation and a pleasant cushioning effect. Armrests, bases and mechanics and colour can be individually, as with all Vitra ID chairs.

Vitra sees green. The designer furniture manufacturer is in many ways environmentally sustainable.


Born in 1950 in the Italian municipality of Meda Antonio Citterio has been active in various fields since completing his architecture studies. He founded his own studio in 1972 and has worked mainly in furniture design - since 1999 in the studio "Antonio Citterio and Partners", which he founded with Patricia Viel - but also in the fields of architecture, industrial and graphic design. Antonio Citterio's works have received many awards and are to be found in the collections of the most important museums. Whereas Citterio initially focussed on collaborations with Italian manufacturers today he realises projects with a wide portfolio of international clients including, for example, Vitra, Flos, Kartell or Hansgrohe. With Vitra Citterio has collaborated since 1988 - the cooperation beginning with a number of office furniture projects for the Swiss manufacturer. In 2010 Citterio and Vitra launched the IC Chair Concept with the Vitra ID Mesh, the Vitra ID Trim and the Vitra ID Soft. In 2012 further models were added including the Vitra ID Air.

A selection Vitra office chairs, including the ID Mesh

The ID Chair Concept offers numerous configuration options for functional and visually pleasing office chairs.


The Vitra ID Mesh is produced by the Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra in its production facilities in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Both the backrest frame of the ID Mesh and the removable lumbar polyamide are produced from polyamide. The Vitra ID Chair has a five foot base available polished aluminium or plastic in the colour basic dark. Environmental and social responsibility are key to Vitra's corporate philosophy; and in all stages of the production the manufacturer attaches great importance to both. In the case of ID Vitra office chairs that means not only that that Vitra use up to 58 percent of recycled material in the production of the chairs, but that they can subsequently be 98 percent recycled when fully separated. However Vitra's pursuit of sustainable furniture production is not limited to reductions in terms of consumption of energy, raw materials and other resources but also through the use of high quality materials and the end products exceptionally longevity mean that a Vitra chair such as the ID Chair should last a lifetime. And long product cycles are always better than recycling.

Antonio Citterio designte die ID Chairs für Vitra


Since the beginning the company's history chair design has had a special significance for the furniture manufacturer Vitra. It was, for example, chairs of Ray and Charles Eames, which led the company founders Willi and Erika Fehlbaum in 1953 to seek production licenses for the Eames' designs from the American manufacturer Hermann Miller - the initial and most important step on the way to the contemporary Vitra. Over the years Vitra has diversified and today is active across furniture genres, whereby the development of innovative furnishing solutions for the office sector is a particular focus. With Vitra ID Chair Antonio Citterio has made in this sense an important contribution. In addition to the ID Chair Concept Citterio has also created further office chairs for the Swiss furniture manufacturer including the AC 4, and has also contributed to the Vitra Home Collection with works such as the lounge chair Repos from 2011.
