If you know of Dieter Rams, it’s probably through the electric products he designed for Braun in the 60s and 70s. But his designs spread much wider than early gadgets – and included this award-winning Vitsoe 620 chair, which has just been reissued by Vitsoe.
The reissued chair has been made in conjunction with the designer, using the original tools and with the same technical detailing. Housed in a polished, glass-fibre frame, the 620 is actually a number of chairs in one – like a kit of chair parts. Separate chairs can become a sofa, a low back can be changed for a high back and a swivel base can replace castors or feet. And all the upholstery is easily removed.
But whatever combination you choose, it should be a solid investment and an eye-catching addition to any living room. Prices start at £2,305.
