Shapes from the world of vegetation serve as inspiration for the Vegetal chair. Its plant-like structure goes to the limits of the technically feasible, and the colors emphasise the link to nature.Features:

The coolest most comfortable chair ever!
Loved the design of this chair (so unique and interesting) but wondered if it could also be comfortable (form vs. function), Was happily surprised to find it extremely comfortable and really well designed and constructed. Thinking of getting a couple more as they are also stackable and while not inexpensive at 500 a piece, expect it will be something I will keep for a long long time... ps Got it in black to put against a brick colored wall and it looks simply stunning!
