Curved silhouette: Belleville by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra

Introducing the Belleville family, a new collection developed by Vitra in collaboration with French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Comprising a chair, armchair and series of tables, the Belleville family is characterized by varied materials and muted colors. Named after and inspired by the area of Paris where Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s studio is located, the new collection takes its design cues from the furniture found in Belleville’s bistros, bars and cafés.

Boasting a curved silhouette, the Belleville chair is made up of two components: a structural frame in polyamide, and a thin seat shell available in colored polypropylene, molded plywood veneer or with a leather or fabric cover.

The Belleville table comes with tops in laminate, wood or stone perched on arched, black powder-coated, cast aluminum legs. The legs flow in a sweeping line from their splayed bottom along the central column to the table top. Forming star- or t-shaped bases, they can be arranged as dining tables, single bistro tables or long cafeteria tables.
