Look! The Vitsoe Chair System - A Chair Becomes a Couch

We're a big fan of Vitsoe's shelving units here at AT. Did you know that they also make this chair? Every bit as classic, yet every bit as modern, we love the streamlined look and the arms, sturdy enough for a drink. But, what we adore even more is this chair's adaptability...

This is more than just a a chair, this is protein furniture (classic, well-made pieces that can grow with you) at its adaptable, flexible best. Perfect for a small apartment, it can grow into a large house. Start with a single chair and change it -- mount it on a swivel base, on feet or on castors (available for either hard floors or carpeted floors), or a mixture of feet and castors. The chair can also be changed from a low back chair to a high back chair. Or let's say you want a sofa: Remove one of the the arms from your chair, buy another armless chair, join them together, reattach the arm and, voila, a sofa. There's no limit to the length of the sofa -- or the number of times you can subdivide it as the needs of your life change. And, even though this chair was originally designed in 1962 and only reissued a few years ago, the old ones combine seamlessly with the new ones. Now that's protein. Available through Moss.
