Pacific Chair

Designed by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby for Vitra

Development of the Pacific Chair followed the guiding principle 'full performance, quiet design'. The intuitive office chair offers all the functions necessary for ergonomic seating while demonstrating expressive clarity and exceptional precision. Thanks to its understated design, the Pacific Chair is an ideal addition to any contemporary interior.

Although not readily visible, the Pacific Chair offers all the sophisticated functions necessary for ergonomic seating. The height-adjustable back and armrests form part of the same vertically aligned profile. This is a decisive feature of the overall design concept and allows users to sit sideways. The synchronised mechanism automatically responds to the weight of the respective user, offering an immediate sense of personalised comfort.
