The classic Allstar Chair from Vitra is by designer Konstantin Grcic. In typical Grcic style Allstar defies convention and categorisation - is it a chair for office workplaces or the home office/ study? What period is it from? Does it fulfil specific functions? What is it made of? In developing the Allstar chair, Grcic kept such ideas open to interpretation in order to provide office workers with a relaxed home-like feel and sense of familiarity. In essence The form of Allstar is emblematic and appealing, as though it's always existed, this inspires a feeling of trust and security. Offering casual ease and comfort, it's a sound choice for today's modern offices.
With a height adjustable seat Allstar features synchronised mechanism with lockable positioning, seat depth and height adjustment, and an adjustable backrest. A stout loop frame made of robust plastic simultaneously performs the function of armrests, backrest support and extended arm of the mechanical unit. This enables the separate movement of seat and backrest and transfers the forces to the mechanical unit under the seat. The organically shaped cushions of the seat and back work together with the technical functions to ensure a supreme level of comfort. Collectively this makes Allstar suited to a wide variety of uses. With base and seat cushions in black, the armrest and back can be selected from one of four colours whilst the backrest itself comes in a large variety of fabric or leather choices.
