.05 Chair
Description
Maarten Van Severen’s cantilevered chair is a seamless union of form and function. The minimal design combines a strong, tubular stainless steel frame with a resilient polyurethane foam seat and back that flexes comfortably and yields to the sitter’s body. It’s ideal as comfortable seating for reception areas and meeting rooms. Available in five colors with stainless steel bases. The chair is suitable for outdoor use, but should not be left in the sun for long periods to avoid fading. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in the Museum’s collection.

The son of an abstract painter, Maarten Van Severen studied architecture in Ghent, Belgium. He began designing furniture in 1986, pursuing perfection in form and fabrication from his Ghent workshop. He works in a wide variety of materials, from aluminum to bakelite, exploring the strengths and limitations of each. He frequently collaborates with Rem Koolhaas as a furniture and interior designer for residential commissions. Six examples of Van Severen’s chair designs are included in MoMA’s collection.
