AC 5 Swift
Antonio Citterio, 2017
The AC 5 Group can be used to furnish modern office landscapes in a consistent aesthetic. The meeting chair AC 5 Swift plays a key role in agile team hubs: simple to use, the highly comfortable chair on castors is extremely mobile. Its characteristic angled backrest is not just a unifying visual element shared by all chairs of the AC 5 Group; its flexible structure also offers considerable freedom of movement and promotes dynamic sitting.

- Seat: polyurethane foam padding. Cover in fabric or leather.
- Armrests: polished die-cast aluminium ring armrests, optional leather pads (pads match the leather seat cover; fabric seat covers have nero leather pads).

AC 5 Group
Jointly developed by Antonio Citterio and Vitra, the AC 5 Group is a family of office chairs designed to furnish modern, disparate work environments in a consistent aesthetic. Their trim shapes, sophisticated aluminium components and classic Hopsak cover fabric lend these chairs a dignified elegance. At the same time, the various models of the AC 5 Group cover a wide performance spectrum. These high-quality, versatile chairs are especially well suited for specific applications: from the ergonomically optimised task chair AC 5 Work to the reductive functionality of AC 5 Studio, from the conference chair AC 5 Meet to the flexible AC 5 Swift on castors. Contemporary office environments provide diverse settings in which employees can work alone or in groups as needed – whether at ergonomic single workstations or agile team hubs, in closed meeting rooms or informal interaction spaces. With its distinctive angled backrest, the AC 5 design becomes a unifying visual element in open-plan offices. It can either be used in a uniform version for an understated effect or with the wide range of Hopsak colours to create striking accents or form thematic groups.
