Designed by the British design duo Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, the Vitra Mikado is a chair with a serene yet commanding aura that aims to impress not only with its form but also through its comfort.

Constructed from a 100% recycled polypropylene backrest shell and seat cushion with polyurethane padding, the chair is supported by recycled die-cast aluminium, with legs available in four finishes: polished or powder-coated die-cast aluminium, natural oak, or dark oak. A cleverly designed mechanism hidden beneath the seat enables a gentle reclining motion of the backrest, providing a unique seating experience. With sustainability in mind, the covers are neither glued nor stapled and can be removed for cleaning or replacement, ensuring long-term versatility and longevity.

The Mikado Armchair features an ergonomically shaped seat and backrest, ensuring optimal support for extended periods of sitting. Whether utilised as a dining chair, office chair, or accent piece, it offers a versatile seating solution for users of all ages. With a wide selection of fabric covers and diverse colours, it effortlessly complements any interior style, from home dining tables to restaurants and meeting rooms.

Mikado is also available as a Side Chair.
