The East River Chair from Vitra was designed by Hella Jongerius, noted for fusing the industrial and craft, high and low tech and modern and traditional in her work. Combining wood, metal, leather and fabric the East River chair is a small armchair with a distinctive form. Jongerius has chosen three combinations of fabric - light mix, blue mix and green mix - to create three different looks. Bases can be chosen in either natural or dark oak to suit your interior. Other design considerations include the leather - which has been applied to the arms to alleviate dirt and wear, and a thicker padding applied to the seat cushion. which extends up the backrest to provide greater lumbar support. A strap and handle on the reverse give flexibility through mobility. A wonderfully characteristic addition to any home!

The design of the East River Chair is based on a project Jongerius and Vitra completed for the North delegates Lounge at the U.N in New York.
