Barber & Osgerby continue their collaboration with Vitra with the launch of the Pacific chair at Orgatec 2016. The first office chair from the designers, the Pacific Chair embodies Barber & Osgerby’s signature design precision and features bold colours with straightforward, linear shapes.
The design of the Pacific Chair followed the guiding principle of ‘full performance, quiet design. The high-quality individual components of the chair have a consistent design language, its appearance is strongly defined by the backrest, which extends so far down that no mechanical components are visible from behind, with the exception of the base.
In terms of technical aspects, the Pacific Chair offers all the sophisticated functions necessary for ergonomic seating. The height-adjustable back and armrests form part of the same vertically aligned profile. This is a decisive feature of the overall design concept and allows users to sit sideways. The synchronised mechanism automatically responds to the weight of the respective user, offering an immediate sense of personalised comfort.
Further fine adjustments can be carried out quickly and easily thanks to the concealed but intuitively positioned operating elements. The padded backrest comes in three different heights; one height is available with a mesh cover. Components are colour-coordinated in light or dark versions, available with matching functional armrests or elegant aluminium arm supports.
