The Vitra .05 radically cites the Bauhaus era. It is the first chair to surpass the original chair without back legs: Mart Stam’s cantilever chair from 1926, in formal unwillingness to compromise and in seat comfort.
The flexibility of the Vitra .05 can also be called uncompromising. It does have the appearance of the 20s in the last century, however it really wins you over with the practicability of today. The Vitra .05 is a cantilever chair with integrated polyurethane foam seating shells. Those that see the Vitra .05 for the first time can hardly believe how comfortable it is.
The seat shell with its upholstered effect is self-supporting on a stainless steel tube frame, while the back is supported with leaf springs. The Vitra .05 base is also made out of stainless steel so that it is as a whole very hard-wearing and therefore suitable for outdoors.
