Fabric armchair with armrests

Manufacture year


Products designed by Hella Jongerius exhibit her unique manner of fusing industry and craft, high- and low-tech, traditional and modern – characteristics which are also evident in the East River Chair: with its distinctive form and casual combination of such diverse materials as wood, metal, leather and fabric, this small armchair clearly bears the Dutch designer‘s signature.‎
The colours of the East River Chair are carefully coordinated.‎ Depending on the selection of colour combinations, the chair has a very di erent look, ranging from muted and calm to cheerful and bright.‎ The choice of colours and materials is not based on purely aesthetic reasons: the practical leather covers protect the armrests from dirt and wear, and the thicker padding of the seat cushion, which extends up to the backrest, provides comfortable lumbar support.‎ Thanks to the convenient strap handle on the rear side of the backrest, this compact armchair lends itself to flexible applications.‎
In 2013, Hella Jongerius and Vitra collaborated on the design of a chair for the North Delegates Lounge at the UN headquarters in New York.‎ The development of the East River Chair was based on this design.‎
