evo-c chair

Design Jasper Morrison, 2020
Dyed-through polypropylene, 100% recyclable, matte finish
Made in Germany by Vitra

EVO-C is a successful, uncompromising iteration of the principle and characteristics of the classic cantilever chair in the material of plastic. Thanks to today's gas injection molding technology, plastic structures can achieve the proven strength and rigidity of cantilevered tubular steel constructions. The load-bearing structure is formed by hollow tube-like components that flow seamlessly into the planar surfaces of the seat and back.

Morrison's aim was to eliminate all superfluous details: the shape of EVO-C, which is made entirely from 100% recyclable polypropylene, is determined by the indispensable factors for achieving stability and comfort. It combines the springy properties of tubular steel with the comfort of an ergonomic seat shell.

The use of a single material gives EVO-C a cohesive appearance. Its silhouette is so graceful that the chair almost disappears behind the sitter. And when not in use, the chair resembles a two-legged sculpture growing out of the ground, which serves as a discreetly elegant substitute for the absent owner.

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
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.
