PACC | Office chair By Vitra
Swivel office chair with castors
Leather, Polypropylene (PP)
Thanks to the large selection of bases, the Plastic Chairs by Charles and Ray Eames can be used in a wide range of different settings. For example, the PACC (Pivot Armchair Cast Base on Castors), with its height-adjustable swivel-mount base, is ideal for use in informal office spaces and studio offices. The various colour and upholstery options make it easy to find the right chairs for all types of environments.
- Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene. All models are available with a seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell) or full upholstery. The fully upholstered version has moulded polyurethane foam padding covered in fabric, attached to the shell with a welted edge. Different shell and upholstery colours and various bases provide a multitude of possible combinations.
- Options: the Eames Plastic Chair is available as a visitor chair, dining chair, rocking chair, swivel chair or in stacking versions and with ganging brackets for row seating. Beam-mounted shells are suited for use in waiting areas.
- Base: five-star base in polished die-cast aluminium with double castors in basic dark. (PACC = Pivot Armchair Cast Base on Castors)
The Eames Plastic Chairs are renewed versions of the legendary Fiberglass Chair. As the very first industrially produced plastic chair, it was originally developed by the Eameses in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the 'Low-Cost Furniture Design' competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art. In the current versions made of polypropylene, these chairs provide even greater comfort.
The wide selection of bases makes it possible to use the chairs in a variety of settings: from the dining room or home office to the garden. Different colours and upholstery versions provide many options for combining individual chairs to meet various needs.
In 2015, Vitra adapted the seat geometry and height of the Eames Plastic Chairs to today's requirements and also expanded the selection of colours with six new shades.
The Eames Plastic Armchair is complemented by the Eames Plastic Side Chair without armrests.
