pacific chair with medium high backrest

pacific chair with medium high backrest

Design Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, 2016
Die-cast aluminum, polyurethane foam, polyamide, steel, upholstery
Made in Germany by Vitra

Development of the Pacific Chair followed the guiding principle 'full performance, quiet design' and achieved a harmonious combination of these two characteristics. The individual, high-quality components have a consistent design language, lending the Pacific Chair expressive clarity and precision. Its appearance is strongly defined by the backrest, which extends so far down that no mechanical components are visible from behind, with the exception of the base. With its linear silhouette and understated design, the chair is an ideal addition to any contemporary interior.

Although not readily visible, the Pacific Chair offers all the sophisticated functions necessary for ergonomic seating. The height-adjustable back and armrests form part of the same vertically aligned profile. This is a decisive feature of the overall design concept and allows users to sit sideways. The synchronized mechanism automatically responds to the weight of the respective user, offering an immediate sense of personalized comfort. Further fine adjustments can be carried out quickly and easily thanks to the concealed but intuitively positioned operating elements. The padded backrest comes in three different heights; components are color-coordinated in light or dark versions, available with matching functional armrests or elegant aluminum arm supports.

- Seat mechanism: synchronized mechanism with automatic weight adjustment and manual fine tuning of backrest resistance with five settings. The backrest can be locked in the upright position. Equipped as standard with seat height and seat depth adjustment. Aluminum casing for seat mechanism, sandblasted or powder-coated (deep black) depending on the frame color selected. Control lever on seat mechanism always made of polyamide in deep black.

Also available with fixed armrests in die-cast aluminum, polished or powder-coated (deep black) depending on the frame color selected, optional leather pads in Leather Premium.

Barber & Osgerby

London-based industrial design studio Barber & Ogersby was established in 1996 by British designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The two men met while studying for their Master's degrees in Architecture at London's Royal College of Art. Their first piece together, the Loop table, secured a relationship with Cappellini and garnered much acclaim. As a team, their multidisciplinary portfolio now encompasses furniture, lighting and product design as well as art and architectural-scale projects. They are both Royal Designers for Industry (RDI) and are past recipients of the Jerwood Applied Arts prize. Both are Honorary Doctors of Arts, and Osgerby is an Honorary Fellow of Ravensbourne. The pair have lectured internationally and their work is held in permanent collections around the world including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; London’s Design Museum; and the Art Institute of Chicago. Significant recent projects include the Tip Ton chair for Vitra (2011) and the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Torches.
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.
