.03 by Maarten Van Severen for Vitra

If we’re honest the majority of the chairs currently being presented bore us … a lot.

Too much cleverness and not enough ingenuity.

Unfortunately.

And so every so often we scurry back into our comfort den which we have kitted out with wonders such as .03 by Maarten Van Severen for Vitra.

According to Vitra “The aesthetic trademark of .03 is its clear simple lines – the quintessence of the concept “less is more”. And we couldn’t agree more. Nor with their belief that only once one sits in the chair can one fully appreciate just how comfortable it is.

For what the .03 lacks in extravagant decoration it more than makes up for with it’s clever and well-concieved structure.

With it’s integrated triple layer leaf spring back support and durable, flexible integral foam seat the .03 is a comfortable and user-friendly chair for dining room, living room, office, bedroom, garage. Anywhere.

Maybe a few of today’s oh so clever chair designers should take a page out of Van Severn’s book and concentrate a little more on the function and a little less on the form.

And as we all know, the one follows the other anyway.

As the .03 beautifully shows.
