Ron Arad, 1999

The inviting, iconic T-Vac chair by Ron Arad offers comfortable seating with freedom of movement. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and can be stacked.
Material description
  • Seat shell: corrugated structure, dyed-through polypropylene.
  • Base: stackable four-legged tubular steel base, chrome-plated or powder-coated in silver (RAL 9006). The version with a powder-coated finish is suitable for outdoor use. The base is also galvanised. Fitted with plastic glides for carpet or felt glides for hard floors.
  • Stacking: T-Vac can be stacked up to a height of 5 chairs from the floor.
  • Note: special additives retard the fading of colours due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.
Product family
The elegant plastic shell of T-Vac offers comfortable seating not only in interior spaces but also in outdoor settings: special additives in the moulded polypropylene shell help to prevent the colour from fading, and the powder-coated finish of the base makes the chair suited for use on the terrace or in the garden. Since the chair can be stacked, it is especially useful in places where large numbers of chairs are required.
