The Vitra EVO-C by Jasper Morrison marks the next evolution in the rich history of the two-legged chair seen over the past 100 years. EVO-C is a successful, uncompromising iteration of the principle and characteristics of the classic cantilever chair in the material plastic.
Thanks to today's gas injection molding technology, plastic structures can achieve the proven strength and rigidity of cantilevered tubular steel constructions. The load-bearing structure is formed by hollow tube-like components that flow seamlessly into the planar surfaces of the seat and back.
Made in: Germany
Back, seat, and base: dyed-through polypropylene, 100% recyclable. Matt finish.
Jasper Morrison, 2020
Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the super normal design philosophy: rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results. He often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development, and refinement. He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
