Physix

Alberto Meda, 2012

Ten years ago Vitra developed the Physix chair in collaboration with Alberto Meda, which was subsequently supplemented by additional models. The construction of Physix is based on the basic idea of a single textile panel stretched between two side members, which would offer the greatest possible freedom of movement. To achieve this objective, Alberto Meda created three elements that combined ensure an exceptionally dynamic sitting experience: a highly flexible frame construction, an elastic cover and a stabilising mechanism.
Now Vitra has updated the colours for the seat cover fabrics: fresh hues provide a balanced palette, making it even easier to find a suitable chair for virtually any environment. Physix is available as an office swivel chair, in the version Physix Conference with a four-star base, or in the reductive variant Physix Studio.
