Vitra’s brief: create a stackable, affordable wooden chair. Because of these preconditions, Jongerius focused on a few significant details, such as the plastic ‘feet’ and the stylish link between legs and seating. The sturdy, but also elegant impression, enticed her to name the chair Rotterdam, referring to an old tradition in furniture making: craftsmen used to name their furniture after their home town.
