ID Chair Concept for Vitra


The office swivel chair is the most important item of furniture for an office worker: Being individually adjustable to suit specific users, teams or situations in terms of function, comfort and aesthetics, an office swivel chair can have an impact not only on health but also on productivity and physical well-being in the workplace.

By contrast, many companies seek the advantages of standardisation: Facility management and procurement thus rationalise purchasing and maintenance.

One single office chair model is usually not enough to satisfy these seemingly incompatible needs. That is why Vitra has developed the ID Chair Concept together with Antonio Citterio.

ID Chairs

The ID Chair Concept caters for the various needs in the office: Based on the newly developed FlowMotion platform mechanism, the system provides more than 8,000 options for customisation to suit the individual user, while always remaining essentially the same chair in look and construction – with all the benefits this brings for companies in terms of aesthetics, maintenance and service.

The ID Chair Concept includes three basic types of chair: ID Mesh, ID Soft, and ID Trim. Each of which has different backrests. The backrests are available in several heights, and head or lumbar supports can be added. The synchronous mechanism FlowMotion features various functions, various armrests and bases, as well as a wide range of colours and covers so that every user can customize their very own ID Chair.
