Jill by Alfredo Häberli for Vitra – Milan 2011 (10)

The Jill chair is another product to be introduced in Milan tomorrow and is the first collaborative work by Vitra and Zürich based Alfredo Häberli. Inspired by the early days of plywood moulding, the designer explores the modern boundaries of this technique and creates a flexible shell where, in a patented process, Jill’s veneers are curved until they meet in the middle of the seat. The bases for the chair are made of tubular steel, wire, aluminium and wood, and their coloring is matched to complement the optional leather and fabric covers.
