Design Alberto Meda, 2016
Powder-coated aluminum, polyamide, die-cast aluminum
Made in Germany by Vitra

The AM Chair is the combined result of engineering skill, quality design and experience, uniting ergonomic functionality with technical elegance. Dynamic armrests and a height-adjustable back give the chair an emblematic appearance, while the slender plastic frame and translucent mesh cover bestow a sense of lightness and grace.

The AM Chair is an economical tool for today's office needs. Its synchronized ProMotion mechanism automatically responds to the respective user's weight, providing optimum personalized comfort without any prior adjustments. Simple, intuitive controls can be used for additional fine-tuning. The height-adjustable backrest provides both stability and flexibility, and its ergonomic contours ensure healthy seating. The pleasantly upholstered, perfectly molded seat provides immediate comfort when sitting down.

With numerous individual adjustment options, the AM Chair is an ideal task chair for prolonged periods of sitting at a permanent desk, but thanks to its excellent immediate comfort, it is also well suited for touchdown workstations with frequently changing users.

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.
