Belleville Chair Wood

Belleville Chair Wood
by Vitra

Designed by
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec
for Vitra 2015

The Belleville Chair is a technically sophisticated chair consisting of two components – a structural frame and a seat shell. The contrasting materials of the moulded plywood veneer seat shell and slender black plastic frame gives it the appearance of a wooden chair.

The Belleville Chair can be attractively combined in bustling cafe settings as well as sleekly modern galleries or diversely styled home environments.

Belleville is the name of the vibrant Paris neighbourhood where the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have their studio. Visual references for the Belleville Chair can be found in the classic French bistro furnishings and lively atmosphere of this Parisian quarter. The chair’s familiar shape – even in a contemporary context – might at first be taken for granted, yet it also evokes a sense of mystery and bemusement, since the materiality, construction and fabrication of the chair only become apparent at second glance.
