Design by Konstantin Grcic, 2011.
Waver embodies a casual new aesthetic, incorporating materials and construction principles from the outdoor sports that inspired the design. Though its technical construction is simple, with just one layer of fabric, Waver offers the same comfortable seating one generally expects from classic upholstered furniture. The swivel base and a large cantilever frame allow for great freedom of movement while the energetic colors of the fabric and the clearly emphasized connecting and functional elements give Waver its sporty look and feel.
Allowing for a truly unique seat, the colors of the Waver seat cover, seat cushion, armrests and neck cushion can be individually selected and combined as desired, while the tubular steel frame and four-star base with polyamide glides are powder-coated in your choice of four colors. And thanks to its waterproof materials, the Waver Chair not only looks great in your living room, it is also suitable for use in the garden or on the patio.
Choose from six colors of Sunny fabric for seat cover, seat cushion, armrests and neck cushion, and four colors for the powder-coated base below.
GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified.
Material(s): Tubular steel, polypropylene, plastic, polyurethane foam, neoprene

Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).
Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.View other products from Vitra
