Why does a company like Vitra, focused on contemporary design, manufacture a piece of furniture that was designed so long ago? The answer is very simple.
If I were a chair, I have no idea which chair it would be because there are too many that I like ... possibly it would be a Tolix, a Standard by Prouvé or a Febo by Maxalto.
It is not a piece but an entire collection that enchants me. Given my weakness for Jean Prouvé and the Standard chair, it's not hard to imagine how much I like this collection.
If I said that this is my favorite chair I would not be lying but it would not be entirely sincere. When it comes to furniture I am unfaithful by nature and even more so when it comes to chairs.
