The Coconut Chair (1955) was reintroduced by Vitra in 1988, and is a typical example of 1950s design. It is distinguished by its design purity and restrained use of materials. The comfortable leather or fabric upholstered seat is reminiscent of a coconut that has been cut open into eight identical pieces.
