Moooi VIP Chair

The VIP Chair by Moooi was designed for the WORLD EXPO 2000 by Marcel Wanders, one of the designers that founded this innovative and extreme modern design company. Like most of the furniture and lighting from this Dutch design firm, it reflects the daring,  almost  playful sensibility of the company. To me, many of the undeniably cool products they make border on a parody of the exaggerated self-importance that some modern furniture companies and designers wrap themselves in.

VIP Chair from MOOOi

The VIP Chair is no different, it has a playfully practical design that works equally well as a dining chair, side chair or accent chair. The foam covered steel frame is upholstered in a thick, felt-like fabric that tapers on the legs into a bell bottomed flair. This is really a clever design solution that hides the casters which I find unattractive at best. The caster allow for the chair to be pushed out or moved easily without looking like some kind of utility or office chair.

This simple yet playful design solution makes this an ideal chair for restaurant or commercial use yet is still attractive and interesting enough for use in the home. The armrests and foam padding make it comfortable and it is built to withstand use by the entire family. This isn’t some delicate piece of modern design that should be looked at but not touched. It is attractive, practical, functional and fun!

The Moooi V.I.P Chair is available in the UK from Occa-Home for about £1,381.00 or in the US from Wayfair All Modern for $2,108.00.
