Coconut chair by George Nelson for Vitra.

Nelson compared the Coconut Chair to a coconut cut up into eight sections. The Coconut Chair, however, reverses the colours: The outer plastic seat shell is white and the one-piece upholstery is available in different colours. The inviting and comfortable armchair gives users the freedom to sit in countless different positions.

Shell in fibreglass reinforced plastic, chrome plated tubular steel legs. Seat pad upholstered in Hopsak fabric or leather. 

Material samples are available to view at our shop and showroom

Fitted with plastic glides suitable for carpet; felt glides for hard floors optionally available.

104w x 83d x 26.5/83.5cmh
