Vegetal Chair Chair, 2009
This is a chair. It was designed by Ronan Bouroullec and Erwan Bouroullec and manufactured by Vitra AG. It is dated 2009 and we acquired it in 2010. Its medium is injection-molded polyamide. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
The Bouroullec brothers, inspired by organic forms and matter, worked with Vitra for 4 years to create this chair. The goal was to create a chair that, according to the designers, would “sprout up like a plant . . . with its branches gently curving up to form the seat and back.”
