Vica | 2006/2007

vica_grey_front_SBP_LR

‘Vica’, formerly known as ‘Wieki’, was originally created for an Italian company (which I would rather not mention). My goal designing it, was to soften the look and feel of those typical 20th Century modernist steel frame chairs. Searching for ways to cover them up I intended to start weaving tunnels. It seemed that there was no need for me to do that since woven tunnels already existed in the form of sleeve-ropes used for mountain climbing. Covering the steel chair frames with textile brought them right into the 21st century where materials give extra value. The extra value of ‘Vica’ is simple; covered chair legs prevent goose bumps on bare ones. In 2007 ‘Wieki’ was adopted and renamed into ‘Vica’ by Moooi. Out of production since 2014.

materials: steel frame covered with polyester sleeve, upholstered with kvadrat field fabric on fire retardant foam; black (grey, black and yellow sleeve), grey (grey, light-grey and orange sleeve) and red (red, yellow and orange sleeve); stackable
dimensions: h:79 w:54 d:58 cm, seating height: 46 cm
