A stacking, linking, multi-purpose chair. It has a two-piece polypropylene moulded seat and back with a chromed steel frame.


This project for a stacking, linking chair took a very long time. It’s hard to say why, except that some projects go very smoothly and others need time to come right. Vitra had asked for the chair to fulfil stacking and linking functions, and after thinking it over I realised I wanted it to be a descendant of David Rowland’s GF40/4, probably the best stacking linking chair in existence, but with an outdated ergonomy and too much weight. Sometimes chairs breed other chairs and typologies become established. I like the way objects seem to have relations and ancestors, and if a development of an old model is done with good intentions and builds upon the achievements of the original, I think it’s justified.
