Crafted comfort

The heart of the chair base is a coil-sprung mesh-top unit – made by one of the last remaining traditional spring factories in England. It is overlaid with a long-lasting moulded coconut-fibre (coir) and natural rubber pad (many other manufacturers use cut-foam which degrades over time).

The spring unit and coir pad sit snugly in the immaculate CNC-cut birch-plywood base – that provides solidity for the attachment of the arms and back.

Hidden engineering

Vitsœ, together with Dieter Rams, completely re-engineered the 620 Chair Programme in 2013, right down to the last purpose-designed stainless-steel bolt. The result is an armchair that was refined and improved at the most detailed level to ensure its longevity for generations to come.

Rich heritage

In 1962 the 620 Chair Programme appeared on the market but only seven years later it was copied. Legal action was commenced, and in 1973 the court substantiated: “The design of this chair is a personal, original creation of highly aesthetic value.” Accordingly the 620 Chair Programme was granted copyright protection and may be regarded as a work of art.

Dr Hans Wichmann, 1971

“…620 can safely be considered one of the few major furniture designs of the century, alongside those of Breuer, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Aalto and Saarinen”
