PACC makes with its 5-star base an office chair out of the Plastic Armchair.
The organic shaped seat shell of the Plastic Armchair has been combined with different bases since the 50s. Made of polypropylene, the Armchairs offer today a better seat comfort.
The Armchair PACC is a version of the Eames Plastic Chair, which already has been produced in the 1948 by Charles and Ray Eames and which was the first industrial-produced chair ever. PACC (Pivot Armchair Cast Base on Castors) is the office chair of the series.
To not deflect of the formal, expressive, organic shaped shell shape, Vitra decided for a new height adjustment, which is discretely mounted under the seat shell.
To adjust the height, you have to push the activating slide in the direction of the chair leg. You can either push on the left or the right side. By relieving or loading of the seat shell, you can change the chair's height. You can tell if the chair is adjusted correctly, when the upper- and lower blade create an angle of 90° and when their feet stand flat on the floor.
The Plastic Armchair PACC is also available in further colours. The PACC can also be combined with seat cushions.
