.03 Chair Poppy
A general chair ; at home in all kinds of spaces, .03 is the perfect expression of the late Maarten Van Severen's intelligent aesthetic. Designed in 1999, the Belgian minimalist didn't want the chair as a piece of art, ; says Kris Lenaerts, head of the Maarten Van Severen Foundation, he wanted it to be in the world. ; With Vitra, Van Severen perfected his vision, achieving a linear silhouette and a flexible, integral foam shell that adapts to the body. This is what makes .03 so unexpectedly comfortable and what helped earn the chair a spot in MoMA's permanent collection.
