Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec recently unveiled their Belleville Collection for Vitra. The collection comprises a chair and an armchair as well as rectangular and round tables featuring cast back powder-coated aluminium legs and tops available in laminate wood or stone.
Belleville is composed of a main frame in black polyamide that supports shells in different materials: polypropylene, ultrathin plywood (4.5 mm) or upholstered (fabric or leather).
Belleville's hybrid chair construction makes the chair subtle in regards of different situations: the polyamide version allows heavy-duty outdoor environments, while the upholstery and plywood shell versions belong to a softer landscape. The "one line" frame structure links the feet to the shells and continues into the armrests and into the backrest.
