Pacific Chair
by Barber & Osgerby

New age of the office chair: an evolution from the chair as machine.

Barber & Osgerby have continued their collaboration with Vitra who tasked the designers with the objective of moving the language of office furniture away from the machine to be calm. The first office chair from Barber & Osgerby followed the guiding principle of 'full performance, quiet design', capturing their signature design precision, improving ergonomic comfort, whilst combining bold colours with straightforward linear shapes.
