Description

Vitra’s Rookie task chair offers immediate comfort even before any adjustments. Both the backrest and the seat have a flexibility to their design: the backrest slightly bends when pressure is applied, and the seat has an extraordinarily pliant front edge. Designed by Konstantin Grcic, the Rookie chair is particularly suited for schools, libraries and shared workspaces, places that require a high level of comfort with minimal adjustments.

Designer Konstantin Grcic says: ”Rookie is all about flexibility and change. Its design aesthetic symbolises that magic moment when something new is beginning, but everything is still up in the air. Equally suited as a single desk chair for students or in larger numbers across a wide range of corporate workplaces, Rookie is designed for environments that encourage the creation and exchange of ideas.”

Konstantin Grcic

The German designer Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965) studied in Royal College of Art in London. In 1991 he founded his own company, KGID. Over the years, Grcic has had many well-known clients such as Magis, Vitra and Iittala. The cooperation with Magis lead to one of the most interesting and inventive chairs of our time, the Chair One. Chair One became a design icon and a part of the permanent collections in MoMA in New York and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
