ACX is the tenth office swivel chair that Vitra has developed in collaboration with Italian designer Antonio Citterio.
With its automatic synchronised mechanism, the compact ACX offers maximum comfort for every user without any need for adjustments other than seat height – while exhibiting a distinctly non-technical appearance.
The construction, materials, production, logistics and maintenance of ACX are designed to achieve a long life cycle with the smallest possible carbon footprint.
“The ACX is my tenth office swivel chair with Vitra and embodies the extensive know-how acquired throughout 30 years of close collaboration”
The backrests of the ACX Mesh and Soft models have a three-dimensional form-fitted knit cover, which is pulled over the frame. The knitted cover is made of 100% recycled polyester. The knitted seat cover complements the two available backrest covers. The muted colours in natural tones, some exhibiting a slight melange effect, are perfectly compatible with both the dark and light-coloured frame.
The armrests are available in 3 versions: fixed height, height-adjustable and 3D.
“The design process for ACX was guided by the decision to use recycled materials. When you use a recycled material, the design needs to adapt to its inherent characteristics, while the overall production process has to take the physical and mechanical qualities of the material into account. The structural elements in ACX are made of up to approximately 60 % recycled materials, depending on the model.”
