Physix Conference Chair

by Alberto Meda, from vitra.

physix conference chair

physix conference chair

Design Alberto Meda, 2014
Powder-coated aluminum, polyamide, die-cast aluminum
Made in Germany by Vitra

Physix Conference provides dynamic seating and lasting comfort, even without the mechanical adjustment options of the Physix office chair, thanks to its flexible seat frame and elastic textile cover in knit or woven fabric. The chair is an excellent choice for conference and meeting areas in which understated elegance is the key image.

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.

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.

- Frame, seat and back: flexible frame and armrests in polyamide (deep black or soft gray). One-piece sling panel for the seat and back in TrioKnit knitted fabric or FleeceNet woven fabric.

- Base: four-star base in die-cast aluminum, with a polished finish or powder-coated in deep black or soft gray.

25" w | 31.25" d | 36" h | seat: 16.75" h | 19.5" w | 17.25" d

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.
