Alcove Highback Sofa
Design: Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2006

The central idea behind the Alcove Sofa is that a sofa can be much more than just a piece of furniture. This is especially true of the Alcove Highback Sofa, whose side and back panels reach an exceptional height. When someone sits down on the Alcove Highback, they find themselves in a secluded space. Thanks to the outstanding acoustic qualities of the Alcove Highback Sofa and its function as a visual screen, it creates a peaceful oasis — especially in spacious living areas. This effect is even more pronounced when two sofas are positioned face to face, thereby defining a room within a room.

Aluminium Group EA 115/EA 116
Design: Charles & Ray Eames, 1958

The Aluminium Chair is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century. The Aluminium Chair stands out for its intelligent combination of materials. The covers are attached inside the aluminium profile sections and simply stretched over the frame, transforming them from mere coverings to a load-bearing part of the structure. It adapts to fit the body snugly and delivers great comfort, even without extensive upholstery.

Vitra has produced the Aluminium Chair programme for many decades to a consistently high quality. On the basis of this experience we are now granting a 30-year guarantee on all chairs of the Aluminium Group.

Organic Chairs
Design: Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen, 1940

It was for the “Organic Design in Home Furnishings” competition held in 1941 by the Museum of Modern Art that Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen created several different versions of the Organic Chair. From a technical perspective, the designs were ahead of their time. However, due to the lack of suitable manufacturing technology, they never went into serial production. It was only later that organicallyshaped seat shells could be produced and sold in larger quantities, exemplified by the Eames Plastic Chair by Charles & Ray Eames or the Tulip Chair by Eero Saarinen. In 2006, Vitra and the Vitra Design Museum launched the first serial production of the Organic Chair, bringing this classic design piece back to life. The Organic Highback featuring a higher backrest and neck cushion followed in 2008. In 2011, this series of two reading chairs was extended to include the Organic Conference. Featuring measurements optimised for use at desks or tables, the Organic Conference is suitable for use in the dining area or for conference and meeting situations.

Wall Clocks
Design: George Nelson, 1948-60

With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, George Nelson’s clocks embody the joie de vivre of the 1950s. To this day, his clocks remain a refreshing alternative to the usual time- keepers. The Vitra Design Museum presents a re-edition of the designs so cherished by collectors – in a true-to-the-original form.

Slow Chair
Design: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, 2007

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created this expansive armchair by using an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. Thanks to the knit sling cover, the Slow Chair combines soft comfort with ergonomic support, which is further enhanced by thin seat and back cushions. The translucent sling cover replaces the thick cushions of traditional armchairs, resulting in a design that is lightweight, yet generously proportioned. The restrained appearance of the Slow Chair is equally appealing in the living room or winter garden, while offering unrestrained seating comfort.
