East River Lounge Chair

Design Hella Jongerius, 2014
Plastic laminate, polyurethane, wood, steel, upholstery
Made in Germany by Vitra

Products designed by Hella Jongerius exhibit her unique manner of fusing industry and craft, high- and low-tech, traditional and modern - characteristics which are also evident in the East River Chair: with its distinctive form and casual combination of such diverse materials as wood, metal, leather and fabric, this small armchair clearly bears the Dutch designer's signature.

The colors of the East River Chair are carefully coordinated. Depending on the selection of color combinations, the chair has a very different look, ranging from muted and calm to cheerful and bright. The choice of colors and materials is not based on purely aesthetic reasons: the practical leather covers protect the armrests from dirt and wear, and the thicker padding of the seat cushion, which extends up to the backrest, provides comfortable lumbar support. Thanks to the convenient strap handle on the rear side of the backrest, this compact armchair lends itself to flexible applications.

East River chair features a plastic laminate seat shell with polyurethane foam and covered in a variety of fabric combinations. The legs are either natural oak with powder-coated steel cross braces in ivory or dark oak legs with powder-coated steel cross braces in coffee. In 2013, Hella Jongerius and Vitra collaborated on the design of a chair for the North Delegates Lounge at the UN headquarters in New York. The development of the East River Chair was based on this design.

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.
