Vitra Meda Office Chair Designed by:
- Alberto Meda , 1996
Alberto Meda studied mechanical engineering in Milan, graduating in 1969. Soon after he was appointed technical director for the design-oriented manufacturer, Kartell. In 1979 Meda made the decision to pursue independent work as a designer and engineer.
The wonderfully functional and comfortable Meda task chair, designed during the 1990’s for Vitra, combines ergonomic sophistication with a visual coherence that testifies to his engineering background. Meda’s portfolio is comprised of a wide range of products – everything from cars for Alfa Romeo to high-tech lighting for Luceplan. Meda is acknowledged for his ability to use state-of-the-art materials in ways that are visually arresting as well as structurally sound. Alberto Meda has been working with Vitra since 1994. During this time he has created a series of office chairs and a variety of office and conference desks.
Today he lives in Milan.
