Vitra Slow Chair and Ottoman
Unit Price: £2400.00

The Slow Chair from Vitra was designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Of expansive proportions the Slow Chair design uses an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. Thanks to the knit sling cover, the Slow Chair combines soft comfort with ergonomic support, which is further enhanced by thin seat and back cushions. The translucent sling cover replaces the thick cushions of traditional armchairs, resulting in a design that is lightweight, yet generously proportioned.

The restrained appearance of the Slow Chair is equally appealing in a living room or conservatory, while offering exceptional seating comfort.

With a metal frame and polished or powder coated aluminium legs the Slow Chair has a cover of knitted fabric with, seat and backrest cushions in polyurethane foam and polyester wool. Every Slow Chair includes seat and 2 back cushions and comes in various colour options.

PLEASE NOTE - the colour descriptions below are for order purposes only. As this is a woven fabric the overall look is completely different from that described. The look and specification is as follows:

Black - Dark grey weave, anthracite seat & pad, 1 long moss green & 1 anthracite cushion.
Brown - Dark brown weave with aubergine seat & pad, 1 long moss green & 1 anthracite cushion.
Red/Cream - Pink weave with cream seat & pad, 1 long moss green & 1 laser green cushion.
Brown/Cream - Light grey weave with brown seat & pad, 1 laser green & 1 light moss grey cushion.

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
