Design Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2008
Polyamide dyed throughout
Made in Germany by Vitra
"Our task as designers is to find new structures and new forms of construction. This chair is not just a motif - it is a structure." -Ronan Bouroullec.
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec's interest in organic forms inspired the designers to create a chair that looked as if it had resulted from natural growth. Shapes from the world of vegetation serves as inspiration for Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec's new Vegetal chair, as they did for Algues. Its plant-like structure made of polyamide dyed throughout goes to the limits of the technically feasible, and the six colors (unusual for plastic chairs) emphasize the link to nature.
The two brothers, Ronan and Erwan, have been working together since 1999. Their collaboration is a constant dialogue, nourished by their single identities and strived towards a common goal. Today, the Bouroullec brothers work with numerous manufacturers such as Vitra, Cappellini, Issey Miyake, Magis, Ligne Roset, Habitat and the Kréo Gallery. They were named ?"Creator of the Year" in 2002, elected ?"designer of the year" in 2003 and have won multiple other awards. Their creations have been exhibited in many collective or solo exhibitions and are part of some permanent museum collections around the world.
Vegetal is available in six colors, it is stackable and suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
