Vitra Physix

Many people spend a great deal of their life sat working at an office desk, so it makes sense that your office chair is well considered investment.

If you want to secure a truly luxurious piece of furniture for your office that will provide benefits to your physical health, work engagement and creativity, take a look at the Vitra Physix chair. This chair was designed in 2012 by Alberto Meda for Vitra. Vitra has an ‘ongoing commitment to healthy seating’ displayed in their range of task chairs.

Vitra has been manufacturing office chairs for over 40 years and therefore has the experience and knowledge which is built on with each design.

It is not often that you find an office chair which can be described as beautiful. Alberto Meda’s iconic Vitra Physix chair has elegant 1950s style curves and a suspension system which makes the seat appear to be floating. The chairs look particularly striking when they are arranged in a line around a boardroom table, the curved seat backs all aligned.

Unimaginative office furniture can reflect badly on your business or brand. This iconic chair will inspire and motivate those who sit in it and will also impress clients and visitors to the office space.

Science informed the design of this classic lightweight and streamlined chair, while cutting-edge production was used in the manufacturing process. The design concept was to create a continuous seat shell by stretching fabric over the two sides of the frame.

Innovation was also used for the fabric itself - Alberto Meda developed a contoured knit that is so elastic it was easy to fit over the frame of the chair. This multi-thread super fabric is also very strong. The unique material was named TrioKnit and is available in five different colours.

You can also choose from three base/frame finishes for this swivel chair.

Alberto Meda has worked with Vitra since 1994 and his designs have been a great part of Vitra’s Office Collection. Meda now lives in Milan, teaching at the University of Venice and lecturing a leading design institutions.
