Additional Information


Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec founded their Paris-based design firm in 1999, where they design architectural projects, large-scale art installations, furniture, rugs, tableware and home accessories. Their work has been exhibited worldwide, from MoMA in New York to Centre Pompidou in Paris to Tel Aviv Museum of Art. For the Danish design collective HAY, the brothers designed the Elementaire Side Chair (2018), which appears delicate but is strong enough for everyday use. “The starting point was to do a plastic chair that does not look like a plastic chair,” says Ronan. “Elementaire is a mix of simplicity and delicacy, and that’s it.” The design of this chair was also an opportunity for the Bouroullecs to prove that even when you’re making a mass-produced plastic chair, you don’t have to sacrifice form or color.” We wanted to make an inexpensive chair and make it as beautiful as possible,” says Erwan. “It’s beautiful in terms of being extremely well designed. It’s not too loud, not too shy, just exactly balanced.” Crafted from UV-resistant polypropylene. Made in Denmark.

  • This chair has a matte surface with slight texture.
  • Natural production marks and small areas of inconsistent color are visible. These are results of the manufacturing process and not defects.

Great outside.
These met all my must-haves for outdoor dining: right color, right height, right style, right price. They'd be good inside for kitchen or informal dining, too, but if you're looking for a flawless finish, look elsewhere. The joins where legs meet the seat are visible. They aren't rough, but they do show.

Are they stackable?

BEST ANSWER: Hi Suzanne,

The Elementaire Side Chairs are not stackable.
Can these be used in an uncovered outdoor location? Thinking about buying white so not worried about fading but about material holding up and water pooling in the seat.

Yes, the Elementaire Side Chair is suitable for indoor or outdoor use. The chair is crafted from UV-resistant polypropylene which will hold up outdoors!
