Vitra All Plastic Chair by Jasper Morrison
APC Chair by Jasper Morrison for Vitra
At first glance, the All Plastic Chair is reminiscent of the simple, classic wooden chairs that have been familiar in Europe for many decades. Utilizing a new material, the chair represents a significant advancement in the appearance and functionality of this typology.
The flattened forms of the frame are cast in a single piece, while the thin seat surface is organically shaped and the backrest more finely modeled that the back support of conventional wooden chairs. As a result, the All Plastic Chair is strikingly compact and graceful, and the combination of plastic components makes it extraordinarily comfortable.
The combination of the two types of plastic also offer new possibilities for the color-scheme. The interplay of colors lends the chair a distinctive look and transports its classic shape into a contemporary context.
