Coconut Chair by George Nelson for Vitra

The Coconut Chair was designed by George Nelson in 1955. He was inspired by a coconut cut into eight parts, though he reversed the colors.
By evoking the natural, spacious shape of a shell, Nelson created an inviting and comfortable armchair that allows the sitter to assume a wide range of positions.
Nelson’s Coconut armchair already alludes to the spontaneous lifestyle of the sixties, which was created by a popular everyday culture.
Instead of looking for a shape functionally equivalent to the human body, Nelson made a memorable symbolic statement that introduced a new, deliberately easy-going type of sitting.
Vitra has been producing the Coconut since 1988. This one is produced in 2004 and still in perfect condition.
It is a nice combination of a broken white shell and chocolate brown leather.
