Vitra, a Swiss family-owned furniture company with headquarters situated in Birsfelden, Switzerland has launched a new collection — Eames Special Collection.

The furniture company is known for using their thoughts and emotions to shape their surroundings. Vitra was in close collaboration with the Eames office when producing new versions of selected iconic pieces by Charles and Ray Eames.

In addition to the Eames Special Collection, Vitra collaborated with Italian designer, Antonio Cittertio to develop the ACX collection. This particular collection happens to be the 10th swivel chair that Vitra has developed with Antonio.

The ACX Collection consists of ACX Mesh, ACX Soft and ACX Light

The ACX collection has an automatic synchronised mechanism that allows and offers maximum comfort for every user without the need for adjustment other than seat height. The collection has 3 ACX models (alongside their differences); their construction, logistics, materials, production and maintenance are designed to achieve a long cycle with the smallest possible carbon footprint.
