Description

The Jill chair is the first cooperation of Vitra and Alfredo Häberli. Inspired by the beginnings of plywood deformation, Jill sounds the borders of this technology out. Jill Wood moreover possesses a filigree steel rod base.

Charles Eames reached crossed the border between two and three dimensional deformation of plywood in the forties for the first time. The fascination for sculptural expression of this soon polywood-prototype is recognizable in many of Alfredo Häberlis designs. The in 1964 in Argentina born Swiss designer works with his studio which has been founded in 1991 for namely companies in product and furniture design, textiles shaping as well as interior architecture, Alfredo Häberli formally refers to the forties with Jill and transforms these into modern organic seats with Vitra and the newest plywood-technology.

Jill’s veneers are bent in a patented procedure, until the seats get together. This creates an open and flexible seat with transition of seat to back which follows body contours. Two endless lines, an interior and an exterior, penetrate and surround an area forming a sculptural form which follows the contours of the body offering exceptional seat comfort thanks to high flexibility.

The base of Jill has also been partly inspired by historic idols but always offering a contemporary expression to the chair – especially in its distinctive colour which is adapted to the optionally available seat-covers.
