    Belleville Chairs

    Designed by: Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
    Manufactured by: Vitra

    Year of production: 2015

    Belleville is the name of the vibrant Paris neighbourhood where the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have their studio. Classic French bistro furnishings and the lively atmosphere of this Parisian quarter give visual references for the Belleville Chair and Belleville Tables – an unusual plastic chair and a family of tables for dining rooms and cafeterias. The familiar shapes of the Belleville family might initially be taken for granted, even in a contemporary context. Yet their presence also evokes a sense of mystery and bemusement, since the materiality, construction and fabrication of the pieces only become apparent at second glance.

    The Belleville Chair is a technically sophisticated plastic chair consisting of two components - a structural frame and a seat shell. Tracing the calligraphic lines of the legs and back, the slender black frame supports a thin shell that tapers from the wide seat surface into a narrow backrest. This type of construction opens up new perspectives for the materiality of the plastic chair, since the surface of the seat shell is the defining characteristic of the Belleville Chair's identity: available in coloured polyamide, moulded plywood veneer or with a cover in leather or fabric, the perception of the Belleville Chair is transformed from a plastic chair to a wooden chair to an upholstered chair - and even to an armchair with forward slanting armrests.

    The Belleville chairs and armchairs with a plastic shell are also suited for use in outdoor areas.
