The Vitra Coconut Armchair was first designed in 1955 by American industrial designer George Nelson.
Coconut is a typical 1950s design – characterized by its witty touch, formal clarity and minimal use of materials. Nelson compared it to a coconut split into eight parts and reversed the colors of the coconut: the plastic seat shell is white, while the single-section upholstery comes in a variety of colors.
This return to the natural spatial shape of a shell allowed Nelson to create an inviting, comfortable seat that offers users the freedom to sit in a myriad of different positions.
