Chairless by Vitra

Inspired by the nomadic Ayoreo Indians of Paraguay, ‘Chairless‘ is a vision of simpicity designed/stolen by Alejandro Aravena for Swiss design giants, Vitra. It’s a chair that’s not a chair, an action that has become a product…. as Aravena himself describes, when we want to drink we instinctively “put our hands together and create a kind of bowl”, when we want to see into the distance we “put our hand above our eyebrows shading our eyes”, and “when we sit on the ground, we intuitively put our arms around our legs”. Whilst the bowl and visor have long been a part of our lives, the cloth band used by the Ayoreo Indians has not, until of course now, as it has been industrialised by Aravena into ‘Chairless’, a new concept in seating that allows us the freedom to sit comfortably wherever we may be…. Vitra, if you’re listening, we wouldn’t half mind giving these a go at Glastonbury…. you know where we are!
