Vitra Softshell Chair


With its shell-shaped design, the Vitra Softshell Chair provides a level of comfort you can only appreciate when you actually sit on it: Vertical structural elements under the cover adjust to the user’s back, giving the person freedom of movement as well as superb seating comfort, even over long periods of time.

Designed By

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec were born in France in the 1970's, they studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. The brothers are noted for their design work, which has been featured in publications and museums globally — and spans a wide range from tables and chairs to tableware, rugs, textile walls, office furniture, ceramics, art objects and urban projects.

They have a fantastic relationship with Hay in Denmark, as well as Vitra in Switzerland who let them create their unique, innovative designs. Without doubt the Boroullec's designs are set to become Design Classics of the future.
