The elegant plastic shell of T-Vac offers comfortable seating not only in interior spaces but also in outdoor settings: special additives in the moulded polypropylene shell help to prevent the colour from fading, and the powder-coated finish of the base makes the chair suited for use on the terrace or in the garden.
The inviting, iconic Tom Vac chair by Ron Arad offers comfortable seating with freedom of movement. Since the chair can be stacked, it is especially useful in places where large numbers of chairs are required.
Ron Arad, born 1951 in Tel Aviv, studied at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, and at the Architectural Association in London.
In 1981 he opened the office One Off Ltd. in London together with Caroline Thorman and began to handcraft unconventional furnishings made mostly out of welded steel sheeting with distinctive sculptural forms.
He and Thorman founded Ron Arad Associates Ltd. together with Canadian architect Alison Brooks in 1989. Since the late 1980s, Arad has also designed furniture for series production.
In 1994 he established the "ron arad studio" in Como, Italy, and taught product design as a guest professor at the Vienna University of Technology until 1997. Since 1997 he has held a professorship for furniture design and industrial design at the Royal College of Art in London.
