BELLEVILLE CHAIR PLASTIC By Vitra
Stackable polyamide chair
The plastic Belleville Chair consists of two components – a structural frame and a seat shell. The elegant structural frame forms the calligraphic lines of the chair's legs and backrest – and is available without or without forward sloping armrests. The thin seat shell tapers upward from the seat into the back. In addition to the version made of coloured plastic, the shell also comes in plywood veneer or upholstered in leather or fabric. Belleville Chair Plastic is also suitable for outdoor use.
- Seat shell, base and frame: injection-moulded polyamide. Stackable up to 6 high.
Belleville is the name of the vibrant Paris neighbourhood where the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have their studio. Visual references for the Belleville Chair can be found in the classic French bistro furnishings and lively atmosphere of this Parisian quarter. The chair's familiar shape - even in a contemporary context - might at first be taken for granted, yet it also evokes a sense of mystery and bemusement, since the materiality, construction and fabrication of the chair only become apparent at second glance.
Paired with the Belleville Tables, the Belleville Chair and Armchair form a unified yet diverse group - a hybrid family of furnishings whose forms and materials are harmoniously coordinated. Thus the chairs and tables - in small or large numbers - can be attractively combined in bustling bistro settings as well as sleekly modern galleries or diversely styled home environments.
