The body is supported at two points under each end of the seat surface and behind the backrest by a bridge-like aluminium base frame, making the sofa appear to float above the floor.

    New: The Vitra Soft Modular Sofa

    With carefully balanced proportions, great comfort and a conscious renunciation of decorative details, the Soft Modular Sofa (2016) by Jasper Morrison unites the characteristics of a modular lounge sofa in its purest form.

    The Vitra Soft Modular Sofa configures in so many ways. The Soft Modular Sofa is Jasper Morrison's updated interpretation of what has become a modern classic: the low-slung modular sofa with a decidedly horizontal emphasis.

    Firmly in line with his philosophy of 'super normal' design, Jasper Morrison has successfully coupled home-like informality with precise finishing and expressive clarity. As it functions like an architectural element, the Soft Modular Sofa can be subtly integrated into any interior.

This intuitive office chair offers all the functions necessary for ergonomic seating, while demonstrating expressive clarity and exceptional precision. Thanks to its understated character, the Vitra Pacific Chair is an ideal addition to any contemporary interior.

    The Vitra Pacific Chair Its appearance is strongly defined by the backrest, which extends so far down that no mechanical components are visible from behind, with the exception of the base. With its linear silhouette and understated design, the chair is an ideal addition to any contemporary interior. The Vitra Pacific Chair's appearance is strongly defined by the backrest, which extends so far down that no mechanical components are visible from behind, with the exception of the base.

    Although not readily visible, the Pacific Chair offers all the sophisticated functions necessary for ergonomic seating. The height-adjustable back and armrests form part of the same vertically aligned profile. This is a decisive feature of the overall design concept and allows users to sit sideways. The synchronised mechanism automatically responds to the weight of the respective user, offering an immediate sense of personalised comfort. Further fine adjustments can be carried out quickly and easily thanks to the concealed but intuitively positioned operating elements. The padded backrest comes in three different heights. Components are colour-coordinated in light or dark versions, available with matching functional armrests or elegant aluminium arm supports.

    New: The Vitra ID Chair Collection

    The Vitra ID Collection of Chairs, designed by Antonio Citterio (2010 - 2016) offers countless customization options to suit individual users. Different variations of the FlowMotion mechanism, a selection of backrests, armrests, seats and bases, along with a broad array of colours and fabrics, enable every user and company to find the perfect ID Chair – whether for an open-plan setting, individual or team offices, conference areas or management offices.

    The Vitra Air Chair The one-piece plastic backrest of the Vitra ID Air Office Chair offers strategically placed perforations in its backrest. ID Air offers great freedom of movement while providing the necessary support for healthy sitting postures. The flexibility of the backrest and the effective air circulation are complemented by soft seat upholstery to ensure a high degree of comfort.

     

    The ID Chair Concept consists of the following basic types: ID Air, ID Mesh, ID Soft, ID Soft L, ID Trim, and ID Trim L , each with different backrests. Despite the many possible variations, it always remains essentially the same chair in look and construction – with benefits for companies in terms of aesthetics, maintenance and service.

    With its compact padding, the backrest of the ID Trim office chair conveys a sense of classic elegance and quality craftsmanship. The sandwich construction with integrated lumbar support provides the comfort of an upholstered backrest while being almost as slim as a mesh backrest – offering an alternative to both of these construction types for office chair backrests.

  • Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, France's design duo

    Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec (France, b. 1971, 1976), took the design world by a storm with their first joint projects in the late 1990s and have continued to produce exceptional designs ever since, many of which have already become icons in international museums.

    Shapes from the world of vegetation serve as inspiration for Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec's new Vegetal chair Shapes from the world of vegetation serve as inspiration for Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec's Vegetal Chair, designed for Vitra in 2008. Vegetal is available in six colours, is suitable for indoor or outdoor applications and can be stacked up to three chairs high, which permits flexible use in a variety of settings and in large numbers.

    A 2002 meeting with Vitra’s Rolf Fehlbaum was the beginning of a special partnership that has borne fruit in numerous projects, including Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest, and the Slow Chair.

    Designed in 2004 for Vitra, Algues are at one and the same time interior design components and decorative elements. Reminiscent of plants, the plastic elements can be linked together to form web-like textures - from light curtains to opaque, thick room dividers. Designed in 2004 for Vitra, Algues are both interior design components and decorative elements. Reminiscent of plants, the plastic elements can be linked together to form web-like textures - from light curtains to opaque, thick room dividers. Available in 7 colours, 25 pieces per pack.

    Since 2004, the Bouroullecs have also been working with Magis, for whom they have designed two complete furniture collections, including the Steelwood Collection. The Steelwood pieces combine the warmth of wood with the strength of steel and include chairs, tables and shelving units. A versatile design that fits well in both casual and elegant spaces and everywhere in between.

    Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, who designed the Steelwood Chair, describe it as “stable and democratic, universal and long-lasting.” A very good dining chair for both small dinette spaces and luxurious dining rooms. Over time, the steel and wood components develop an attractive patina. Just what you want in a chair already on its way to being a classic. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, describe the Magis Steelwood Chair as “stable and democratic, universal and long-lasting.” A very good dining chair for both small dinette spaces and luxurious dining rooms. Available in various finish options including red, white and black.

    The Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance with their Losanges Rug Collection for Nanimarquina. It’s about reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug using the ancient kilim technique.

    Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill as it involves combining 13 colours through the geometrical rhombus shape, a great challenge for the craftsmen of Northern Pakistan. As well as being crafted by hand, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand, which allows for some unique colour tones to be highlighted which make each rhombus different and each rug a unique item.

    Today Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design for numerous manufacturers, including Vitra, Magis, Alessi, Mattiazzi, and more recently, Flos and Iittala.

    The AIM is a form of modern pendant lighting that is constructed from a varnished aluminum sheet with a photo-etched optical polycarbonate shade and an internal reflector of a photo-etched ABS. The cable can be adjusted to allow the fixture head and light distribution to be aimed. The cable has a total length of 29 ft 5 inches (9m) allowing the lamp to be suspended up to 9 ft 8inches (3m) from the ceiling.

    Each Ruutu vase is unique - mouth-blown into a steel mould and polished by hand. Designer engraving on the bottom of the vase. Difficult shape and intensive colours of the Ruutu vases require very skillfull craftsmen to work during 24 hour production process of one vase. It takes 7 craftsmen to blow one vase. The fluidity of mouth blown glass and the vibrant quality of the flat surfaces create an elegant combination with the geometric shape.

    Both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own Paris-based design studio. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organisation of interior space.
