Tom Vac is a versatile chair and fits in well with a variety of different environments. It can be used individually in shops, offices, homes, or in multiples around tables in restaurants, meeting and conference rooms... wherever large numbers of chairs are needed, indoors or outdoors. The outdoor version comes with a galvanized and powder-coated frame with a dull silver finish and its plastic shell contains additives that prevent color fading. Tom Vac is elegant and comfortable. The plastic seat shell is generously proportioned and offers a high degree of comfort, while its corrugated structure provides stability and flexibility. Up to five chairs will stack with ease to save space.

Ron Arad

Hailed as one of the foremost designers of the 20th Century, Tel Aviv native Ron Arad attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem from 1971-73 before moving to London to study under Peter Cook, founder of Archigram, at the Architectural Association. In 1981, he scoured a scrapyard and combined a car seat with a structural tubing frame to create the postmodern Rover Chair, whose popularity significantly launched his career. Ron Arad’s unique design style would continue to use unorthodox combinations of materials and concepts. In 1994, he created the Bookworm bookshelf, a sturdy but flexible shelf that can coil or take on limitless shape. Employing bimorphic shapes from steel remained a trademark of Arad’s works.
