.04 counter chair

Design Maarten Van Severen, 2000
Polyurethane shell, integrated leaf springs, steel base, die-cast aluminum
Made in Germany by Vitra

The .04 Counter chair is characterized by an unobtrusive design. It offers comfortable seating despite a sleek design and is therefore ideal for office environments. It is particularly suited for meeting and conference settings, where it can be combined with standing-height tables for a healthy alternative to long periods of sitting.

The flexible polyurethane foam shell yields gently to the user's weight and adapts to body contours to afford enjoyable sitting and provide comfortable flexibility for the back. The micro-mechanism with a rubber ball joint allows gentle multi-directional movement. As a result, .04 is exceptionally comfortable even if you want to sit for hours on end. Available with or without armrests.

Formal clarity and simplicity are distinguishing aesthetic features of Maarten Van Severen's designs. His work, handproduced in his workshop in Ghent Belgium, reflects his quest for perfection in form, detail and fabrication. Their appearance is restrained and elegant. Every element is structurally motivated and reduced to its essential form. Maarten works in a variety of different materials: aluminium and ply to bakelite and polyester.

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.

Comfortable and modern
katie, more than a month ago.
This chair is minimal and modern, and the seat has a slight give to make it comfortable. I highly recommend it as seating for a workspace.
