"The 'Figura' makes use of an existing office chair produced by Vitra, but by "dressing" it with stylish upholstery, Bellini conceals the high-tech aspect. The belt, pleat, and impeccable tailoring exemplify the Italian flair for haute couture and give the chair personality and elegance. The wide belt does suggest the presence of a waist, which implies movement where we normally expect it to occur in the human body. The upholstery, which is zipped together, can be removed for cleaning and change of colors." (Exhibition catalogue 'Mario Bellini, designer' directed by Cara McCarty and published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York (1987), available here)

"The Figura chair, designed by Mario Bellini and Dieter Thiel for Vitra was used from 1992 to 1999 in a special version for the seating of the then-new plenary hall of the German Bundestag in the Bundeshaus in Bonn. It was also installed in the Berlin Reichstag building as part of its redesign. Towards the end of 2021 and with the election of a new parliament, 27 new seats have been added to the world's largest parliament making the total now 736 seats." (Vitra, more info here)
