The Vegetal is an organically-shaped chair that is meant to look as if it had taken its shape naturally. With that goal in mind and inspired by small trees which American gardeners had fashioned into the shape of seating furniture, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec set about designing the Vegetal. Designed for outdoor use, the chair had to be both water-resistant and for practical purposes, easily stackable.
The inspiration of natural vegetation is easy to see in the intricate, asymmetrical structure of the branch-like ribs that make up the Vegetal’s seat shell as well as the color scheme.
Chosen for the Vitra Design Museum’s permanent collection and featured in ‘100 Masterpieces’ poster, the time is right to add this ground-breaking design to the Vitra Design Museum Miniatures Collection.
Comes in sets of three to illustrate the stackability of the original chair.
• miniature 1:6 scale model of original design
• set of 3 in brick or forest
• measures 5.3h x 4w x 3.8d inches
