Just in time for Spring!

Relax in these beautiful organic ‘Vegetal’ chairs designed by French duo Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec.

Designed in 2008 and made by renowned Swiss manufacturer Vitra these sculptural outdoor/indoor stacking chairs were inspired by historical gardens of the 20th century, where young trees grew into furniture like structures through continual care and deliberate pruning.

Made from a high density weather resistant polyamide, the ‘Vegetal’ features flat branch structures woven in three levels to form a round slightly irregular seating shell. On the underside, the chair is stabilized by ribs that form out of the supportive legs.

The end result being a chair that appears to have been grown rather than made!

In a development process that took four years, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec worked with Vitra to create a universal chair for indoors and outdoors whose contours seem borrowed from nature. Vegetal features flat branch structures woven in three levels to form a round, slightly irregular seating shell. On the underside, the chair is stabilized by ribs that grow out of the supportive legs. – See more at: http://atomicdesign.ca/test-store/#!/~/product/category=354608&id=36120210
