Fibreglass is a very robust and durable fibre composite made of polyester resin and glass fibres. The glass fibres visible in the plastic lend it a lively surface texture with a lustrous reflection and pleasant tactile qualities. This so-called ‘fibre fingerprint’ may not only vary between different products but can also be a distinguishing characteristic of individual models of the same product. These tiny irregularities and distinctive features are what make each object a unique piece. When manufacturing fibreglass, Vitra uses materials from Central Europe to avoid long transport distances.
