.05 chair

Design Maarten Van Severen, 2000
Polyurethane foam, integrated leaf springs, tubular steel
Made in Germany by Vitra

The principle of the cantilevered chair dates back to the 1930s. The .05 appears to be the purest realization of the cantilevered concept in chair design. The frame construction offers a high degree of comfort by responding to pressure with springy resilience, and the flexible tensile shell makes the seat as comfortable as a cushion.

The aesthetic hallmark of the .05 chair is its sleek, reductive shape. The resilient seat shell, made of integral skin foam with embedded leaf springs, is combined with a cantilever base that flexes slightly when the sitter leans back to provide an unexpected level of comfort. The .05 chair is suited for outdoor use and is also available in a stacking version.

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: aluminum and ply to bakelite and polyester.

Note: special additives retard the fading of colors due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the color may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.
