Information

The Jill Wood Chair, the first collaboration between Alfredo Haberli and Vitra, is a design inspired by the early days of plywood moulding - and in particular the work of Charles and Ray Eames. Jill explores the modern boundaries of the technique whilst also offering a surprising level of comfort.


Whilst paying homage to the early design in plywood moulding Haberli has moved the aesthetic forward to today - incorporating the state of the art in plywood technology in an organically shaped seat shell. In a patented process, Jill's veneers are curved until they meet in the middle of the seat. This creates a flexible shell which features an open transition from the seat to the back, with the thickness of the veneer tapering towards the top of the chair. This flexible shell creates a sculptural form which follows the contours of the body and accommodates it with amazing comfort.

In further homage to Eames the base of Jill is available in two variations - Wood, this version, and the Jill Tube .
