Slow Chair by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra

The Slow Chair, by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, performs double duty. While the comfy armchair could work in your living room, it can also go in your sunroom or temporarily outdoors. Designed for Vitra, the chair is made with a tubular steel frame with a knitted fabric stretched over it that keeps the chair visually light.

Besides being visually light, it’s lightweight and easy to carry so you can transport it outside for a cozy place to lounge on a sunny day. It also has a matching ottoman so you can prop your feet up to really relax.
