This is an original genuine Vitra piece.

Mikado is a chair with a serene yet commanding aura that aims to impress not by its form but through its comfort – whether used around home dining tables, in restaurants or for meeting rooms. The Mikado seating experience is defined by upholstery on all sides as well as the movement of the backrest. An ingeniously simple mechanism concealed beneath the seat allows the back to comfortably recline at a slight angle.

Mikado was designed with sustainability in mind from the outset: the covers are not glued and can be removed for cleaning or replacement. The legs may be replaced individually or exchanged for a different material option – wood or recycled aluminium. The inner seat panel is made of aluminium with a high recycled content, and the backrest shell is produced from recycled post-consumer polypropylene, which can be easily separated from the foam padding during recycling. The concept of a simple exchange of components gives Mikado long-term versatility, thereby ensuring longevity.

Mikado is available as an armchair with the suggestion of armrests or as a side chair, which each offer a distinctive seating experience and yet are so similar that they can be combined without disturbing the visual harmony around a table or within a given space. Different legs, two backrests, a choice of fabric or leather covers and numerous colours afford a wide variety of possible combinations.

Materials: Backrest and seat: flexible backrest, back shell in recycled post-consumer polypropylene, seat and backrest upholstery in polyurethane foam.

Inner seat panel: die-cast aluminium.

Seat height: 505 mm (440 mm with applied load, measured in accordance with EN 1335-1:2000).

Base: non-stackable wooden base in natural oak or dark oak or aluminium base with powder-coated or polished finish; replacement by trained professionals only.

Cover: not glued, in fabric or leather with two seams along the sides of the backrest; replacement by trained professionals only.

Note: none of the components are glued and they can all be separated according to material for recycling.

Origin of wood: oak (Quercus robur) from the Czech Republic.

Dimensions: Width: 59cm x Depth: 56.5cm x Height: 72.5cm (Seat Height: 44cm)
