Allstar Task Chair

allstar task chair

Design Konstantin Grcic, 2014
Polyamide, polyurethane foam, steel, upholstery
Made in Germany by Vitra

The Allstar chair defies conventional categorizations: is it a chair for office workplaces or the home office? What period is it from? Does it fulfill specific functions? What is it made of? In developing Allstar, Konstantin Grcic kept such formulations open in order to create a relaxed, home-like ambience for workers in office settings. Allstar's appealing design is emblematic and familiar, inspiring a sense of dependability and trust. Its casual ease and comfort has a calming influence and de-accelerates the fast-paced dynamic of today's offices.

Allstar also discreetly conceals the necessary functional features of an office chair: a synchronized mechanism with lockable positioning, adjustability of seat height and depth, and an adjustable backrest. The stout loop frame made of robust plastic simultaneously performs the function of armrests, backrest support and extended arm of the mechanical unit. It enables the separate movement of seat and backrest and transfers the load forces to the mechanical unit under the seat. The organically shaped cushions of the seat and back work together with the technical functions to ensure a high level of comfort. Thus Allstar is suited to a wide variety of settings where high functional performance is desired but a classic office chair would be inappropriate for aesthetic reasons - making it an ideal choice for modern workplace concepts or co-working spaces as well as home offices.

* Backrest and seat: backrest in polyamide, coated with polyurethane foam. Height of backrest adjustable up to 2" using a quick release lever. Seat with contouring on the front edge, consisting of a polyamide seat plate, polyurethane foam and a seat cover stretched over the surface in fabric or leather.
* Armrest/back bracket: loop frame made of polyamide that simultaneously serves as the armrest structure, back support and an extended arm of the technical mechanism. Available in 4 colors.
* Mechanical unit: the synchronized mechanism can be locked in the upright position. In plastic (deep black). Base: five-star base in polyamide (deep black) with double casters (Ř 3/8“, basic dark).

31"-37.5" h | 24" w | 19.5"-29.25" d | seat: 16.5"-20.75" h | 15.5"-17.5" d

Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965, Munich) trained as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England and studied design at the Royal college of Art in London from 1988 to 1990. He then founded the KGID office (Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design) in 1991, which led to commissions from leading firms in furniture, design, and architecture. Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, essential, or minimalist. His take on minimalism differs from the current fashion in its function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.
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.
