Vitra Coconut chair is a typical 1950s design – it stands out for its humorous touch and minimal use of materials. Geroge Nelson himself compared it with a coconut cut into eight parts, and inverted the coconut’s colours: the plastic seat shell is white, while the single-section upholstery comes in black leather. This return to the natural spatial shape of a shell enabled Nelson to create an inviting, comfortable armchair that offers users the freedom to sit in countless different positions.
