physix task chair

Design Alberto Meda, 2012
Powder-coated aluminum, polyamide, die-cast aluminum
Made in Germany by Vitra

Designed by Alberto Meda, the lightweight, streamlined Physix office chair has a sophisticated design which guarantees excellent comfort. The high-tech chair is equipped with all the necessary features for an ergonomic seating experience and its understated design is ideally suited to a diverse range of home office environments. Physix is also available in two other functional, minimalist versions.

The structure of Physix is based on the idea of creating a continuous seat shell by stretching a single textile panel between two side members. With its design, the chair assumes its place in a long line of iconic chairs while taking the typology to yet another level.

Using state-of-the-art materials and production technology, Alberto Meda orchestrates an interplay of three elements to create a new dynamic sitting experience: a flexible frame construction, an elastic cover and a stabilizing mechanism. Together these three characteristics form an ingenious construction that explores new possibilities of dynamic sitting through the interaction of flexible and rigid elements. Physix is available as an office swivel chair, in the version Physix Conference with a four-star base, or in the functionally and aesthetically reductive version Physix Studio.

Alberto Meda

Alberto Meda (b. 1945) of Lenno, Italy studied Mechanical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano. From 1973 he was the technical manager of Kartell, in charge of the development of projects of furniture and plastic laboratory equipments. Alberto Meda came to design from engineering, bringing with him a pragmatic mind, and an attention to details as well as formal concerns. His applied-science background gave Meda the recognizable stamp of elegant simplicity, in designs that are at once modern in form and organic in feel. His work caught the eye of Rolf Fehlbaum, the chairman of the Swiss manufacturer Vitra, who commissioned the Italian engineer to design a chair, and beginning a collaboration that continues to this day.
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.
