Vitra Rookie Office Chair
Designer: Konstantin Grcic 2018
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
Rookie is a small, agile and – by office standards – unconventionally simple chair. It provides a high level of immediate comfort with a minimal number of adjustments.
'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
Both the seat and backrest of Rookie are height-adjustable. In addition to these classic functions of a task chair, other ergonomic features are directly incorporated into Rookie's structural design: the backrest flexes slightly when pressure is applied, and the front edge of the seat is unusually pliant.
