The Moca chair is an expression of British designer Jasper Morrison's 'super normal' approach to design: understated, useful and responsible. It follows that Moca is nothing new and revolutionary, but unites the accumulated knowledge of an experienced designer with Vitra's manufacturing expertise – and also has such an unassuming appearance that it seems to have always existed. The combination of these aesthetic features with particularly durable, high-quality materials ensures an unusually long product lifespan.
The base of Moca is constructed with two arcs of steel tubing – one forming the front legs and backrest support, the other constituting the back legs. Two veneered plywood shells are mounted on the base elements to create a comfortable, anatomically shaped seat and backrest. The clever design of the stacking protector attached between the seat and backrest provides optimal protection for the veneer surface.
