A pair of Tom Vac plastic shell Chairs designed by Ron Arad for Vitra, 1999. Signed!

Arad originally designed the Tom Vac chair for an installation for Domus magazine during Milan design week in 1997.

Called Totem, the sculpture comprised 100 chairs stacked on top of each other in a square in Milan. Arad says he used the commission as an "excuse" to design a chair made from vacuum-formed aluminium.

The Totem installation was sponsored by Swiss furniture brand Vitra. Company director Rolf Fehlbaum was so impressed by the design that he offered to put it into production.

The commercial version of the chair, which was released by Vitra two years later in 1999, features a plastic shell to make it more affordable and suitable for the contract market.
