All Plastic Chair

all plastic chair

Design Jasper Morrison, 2016
Dyed-through polypropylene
Made in Germany by Vitra

At first glance, the All Plastic Chair is reminiscent of the simple, classic wooden chairs that have been familiar in Europe for many decades. Utilizing a new material, the chair represents a significant advancement in the appearance and functionality of this typology.

The flattened forms of the frame are cast in a single piece, while the thin seat surface is organically shaped and the backrest more finely modeled than the back support of conventional wooden chairs. As a result, the All Plastic Chair is strikingly compact and graceful, and the combination of plastic components makes it extraordinarily comfortable. Whereas the frame consists of a more rigid, high-strength polypropylene, the seat and backrest adapt to the contours of the sitter's body. The backrest is connected to the frame by twin shafts cushioned with rubber buffers, which allow it to flex gently in response to the sitter's movements, further enhancing the chair's comfort.

The combination of two types of plastic also offers new possibilities for the color scheme: the All Plastic Chair is exclusively available with a 'two-tone' palette pairing frames in a slightly darker shade with seats and backrests in a lighter nuance of the same hue. This interplay of colors lends the chair a distinctive look and transports its classic shape into a contemporary context.

Thanks to the use of high-performance plastics that are resistant to sunlight and water, the All Plastic Chair is a robust, durable chair for indoor and outdoor settings. It is an excellent choice for home dining rooms as well as cafés, restaurants and other public venues.

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra's approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
