The Vitra Organic Highback Chair by Charles Eames & Eero Saarinen was conceived back in 1940. The design was literally ahead of its time, its unusual shape and material innovations keeping it from mass production for many years. This 2008 release from Vitra builds on the original design of the organic and ergonomic Organic Chair with a higher backrest and neck cushion.
Founded in Switzerland in 1950, Vitra produces intelligent and inspiring furniture and accessories for the home, office and other public spaces. Ever mindful of the importance of sustainability in design, Vitra creates furnishings with high quality and versatile style that ensures functional and aesthetic enjoyment for the long term.
