Product description

A kit of parts. Two bolts allow seats and arms to be easily added or removed so a single chair can become a sofa, or vice versa. Available in six upholstery colours, the full-grain uncoated leather will develop a rich and enviable patina with time. The outer shell – in either off-white or black – is made from a hot-pressed sheet moulding compound, which is similar to, but stronger than fibreglass. The chair base is a traditional coil-sprung structure overlaid with a rubberised-coir pad (a mixture of torn coconut husks and natural rubber).
Dimensions (cm): 86w x 76d x 92h

Concept

Designed by Dieter Rams for Vitsœ in 1962, the 620 Chair Programme is a kit of parts that adapts to your changing life. Separate chairs can become a sofa – or vice versa – at any time in the future. A low back can be changed for a high back, a swivel base can replace castors or feet, and a matching footstool adds to the comfort.
