Physix chair by Alberto Meda for Vitra.

The structure of Physix is based on the idea of creating a continuous seat shell by stretching a single textile panel between two side members. With its design, the chair assumes its place in a long line of iconic chairs while taking the typology to yet another level.

Using state-of-the-art materials and production technology, Alberto Meda orchestrates an interplay of three elements to create a new dynamic sitting experience: a flexible frame construction, an elastic cover and a stabilising mechanism.

Together these three characteristics form an ingenious construction that explores new possibilities of dynamic sitting through the interaction of flexible and rigid elements.

Powder coated aluminium mechanical unit and back brace in deep black (RAL 9005) or soft grey (RAL 7047). With sychronised movement, individual adapation of backrest resistance and locking device in upright position.

Seat height continuously adjustable via pneumatic spring. Flexible frame, seat and back in polyamide (deep black or soft grey). One-piece sling panel for the seat and back in TrioKnit upholstery fabric. Please view product downloads for swatches. Five star base in die-cast aluminium, with a polished finish or powder-coated in deep black or soft grey.
