Vitra Tom Vac Side Chair

The equally elegant and comfortable plastic shell of the Tom Vac Chair offers a high degree of comfort both indoors and outdoors. Special additives to the plastic shell prevent it from bleaching in the sun and a powder coated base means that it is also suitable for use on a patio or in the garden. The T. Vac Chair can be stacked up to five chairs high and will suit a number of environments. It can be used, for example, as a single chair for shops, offices or the home, but also in places where multiples are required, such as in restaurants, cafes, meeting and conference rooms or in waiting areas.


  • Crafted of Polypropylene with a wave-textured seat shell dyed right through
  • Powder coated base
  • Contains stacking spigots on the underside with integrated screw sockets for secure, stable stacking of the frame
  • Can be used indoors and outdoors
  • Special additives in the seat pan slow fading due to UV radiation
  • It is recommended that the chair is not exposed to the sun for longer than is necessary

Classic design

Jonathan from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer

Classic design piece that would go well with a modern home. Arrived on time. All Vitra pieces are packaged very well. Purchased the coated finish for outdoor use. Doesn't look as great as chrome finish, but better for the purpose.

About the Designer

Ron Arad

Ron Arad Israel (1951 - )

Ron Arad was born in 1951 in Tel Aviv into an artistic family - his mother is a painter, his father a photographer. He attended the Academy of Art in Jerusalem until the early 1970s, when he decided to leave Israel and study architecture in the UK. Settling in London in 1974, he enrolled at the city's least conventional school, the Architectural Association, where he studied under Peter Cool and Bernard Tschumi with classmates like Nigel Coates, Peter Wilson and Zaka Hadid. He quickly developed artistic and cultural interests outside architecture, and his work became increasingly oriented towards design and non-rhetorical artistic uses of materials. In 1981, with Dennis Groves and Caroline Thorman, he set up One Off, the design agency that made its successful debut with a set of tubular steel furniture. Arad has made no secret of his predilection for technology and the modern aesthetic as ways of revisiting and revising typologies from the past. As a sculptor and craftsman who has taught himself to cut sheet steel, bend wooden legs and put bent plywood to new sculptural uses, he has produced furniture that is emotional and sensual as well as aggressively light and practical. A similar philosophy is evident in his designs for the futuristic foyer of the Opera House in Tel Aviv, the Belgo restaurant in London, the installations for "L'Esprit du Nomade", Fondation Cartier in Paris, the impressive project of Adidas Stadium in Paris, the Domus Totem for the Triennale in Milan, the exclusive Yohji Yamamoto's Store in Tokyo, the Design Museum in Holon, Israel.

About the Manufacturer

Founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum, Vitra has been the retailer of the works of many internationally renowned furniture designers. Throughout those 50 years Vitra has had one goal: to make the place of work as appealing, productive, and healthy as possible. Vitra furniture can be found in countless successful companies and organizations, as well as in the homes of many private individuals with an affinity for design.

Convinced that rooms and interior design have a decisive influence on people's motivation, performance, and health, Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire, and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support. In order to attain this goal, Vitra has worked with their specialized team and renowned designers. Over the years, Vitra has exemplified that they are not afraid to experiment with new and bold ideas and eagerly anticipate and look forward to facing the new challenges of the world of work.

Vitra is vigorously persistent in creating products of the highest quality. Once in the factory, the Vitra staff manufactures the furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product. The focus on quality does not end at the factory door. Providing clients with premier service is just as important as manufacturing furniture. In order to further ensure the high quality in all Vitra products, Vitra has set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.
