ID Air Chair

Designed by Antonio Citterio for Vitra

ID Air represents simplicity in design without relinquishing comfort.

The one-piece plastic backrest of ID Air is manufactured in a patented process. The pattern of strategically placed perforations and the high-tech plastic material create firmer zones to provide support and more pliant zones to grant freedom of movement. The flexibility of the backrest and effective air circulation are complemented by soft seat upholstery to ensure a high degree of comfort.

95% recyclable and consist of up to 48% recycled materials.
