Chair Miniature Bocca, Vitra
The miniature chair is distinguished by its lip shape.
This vibrant red colored chair uses cold expanded polyurethane and makes traditional mobile building methods redundant.
A collection piece that belongs to a series of sculptural furniture objects highlighted among the furniture designs of the 'Studio 65' group, as it makes radical use of the design freedom allowed by this new material.
The style of this furniture demonstrates characteristics originating from the pictorial arts of the 60s: the softening of a Claes Oldenburg, the naive styling found in comics and commercial art, or the gigantic and intoxicated dimensions assumed by objects from the 60s.
Alongside an armchair in the shape of a pillared Greek temple and a Babylonian shrine as a children's play system, Studio 65's contribution to "radical design" included a sofa in the shape of a woman's mouth. The subtitle Studio 65 gave his Sofa Bocca: 'pseudonyms, pseudonyms Marylin', is a reference to the inspiration for this design and its symbolism.
Salvador Dalí, who was attributed the idea of a design of this type, was cited by Studio 65 in this context as follows: "Objects with a symbolic function do not leave room for formal considerations. They are characterized only by the idea of love of each individual and are above any notion of form."
Vitra is an 80-year-old family business brand that believes in lasting relationships with customers, employees, designers, durable products, sustainable growth and the promotion of good design.
Vitra's classic objects are authentic 20th century innovative designs that remain very current today. Creating innovative products and concepts with great designers is the essence of Vitra.
