Reduced shape: .05 Chair from Vitra
The .05 chair from Vitra creates its aesthetic effect through its simple form and design. For the necessary comfort, a leaf spring is embedded in the flexible polyurethane integral foam shell so that the upper part of the backrest deforms when leaning back.
This, together with the slight sinking effect typical of the cantilever undercarriage, results in a sitting comfort that is not expected when simply looking at the chair. Since the base is made of stainless steel, the .05 can also be used outdoors.
Maarten Van Severen – Designer
Maarten Van Severen studied architecture at the art school in Ghent. After designing his first piece of furniture in 1986, the following year he founded a furniture design workshop to design limited and semi-industrial products. He attached great importance to the unity of design and production. So it is not surprising that his focus was on the development of elementary furniture types such as chairs, tables, shelves and cupboards.
When he began working with Vitra in 1996, Van Severen opened up new materials and an unprecedented breadth of impact.
Material and size
The .05 chair is a cantilever chair with an integral polyurethane foam seat shell. The base is made of brushed or powder-coated stainless steel and is also available stackable on request.
Note: Special additives slow down the fading of the colours due to UV radiation. If the chair is exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, the colour may still change. We recommend not exposing the chair to the sun for longer than necessary.
