Two-seat sofa from the 620 chair programme in chocolate leather.
Designed by Dieter Rams for Vitsœ in 1962.
The 620 chair programme is a kit of parts that adapts to your changing life. Separate chairs can become a sofa – or vice versa – at any time in the future.
620 has been designed and built to last a lifetime and more. The highest-quality materials have been used at every level to achieve the ideal balance between comfort and longevity.
The outer shell is made from a hot-pressed sheet moulding compound, which is similar to, but stronger than fibreglass. The chair base is a traditional coil-sprung structure overlaid with a rubberised-coir pad (a mixture of torn coconut husks and natural rubber).
This lounge chair is in nice vintage shape - the shells have been completely polished!
Original Vitsœ stamp can be found on the inside of the shells.
