In the 1940s, Charles Eames became the first person to successfully mould plywood into three-dimensional shapes. Jill is Alfredo Häberli‘s homage to that time; collaborating with Vitra, he has designed an organically formed seat shell employing the state of the art in plywood technology. Two infinite lines, one interior and one exterior, form the contours of a threedimensional plywood shell. The bases made of tubular steel, aluminium and wood are also partially derived from historic prototypes but give the chair a contemporary design – particularly in the expressive colouring, which is colour-matched to complement the optional seat covers.
Plywood shell in various finishes, with chromed tubular steel frame.
