Ron Arad is one of the most vital and productive figures of the current design. He presents archaic-looking objects full of poetry to the smooth, styled commercial design.
In the "Vitra Edition" he created the "Well Tempered Chair". Its form is not the product of artificial shaping but instead is created by screwing the the steel sheets into arches. The spring steel always springs back into its original shape. Thus, the chair not only appears as a brilliant formal idea, but also conveys a completely new seat feeling.
The original of the Well Tempered Chair was designed by Ron Arad in 1986 and has been produced since 1986-1987 as a 1: 1 model by Vitra AG, Basel / Switzerland.
The miniature offered by Vitra (scale 1: 6) is made of spring steel.
