Vitra seals its veneers with a high-quality finish. Because of this, a soft, slightly damp cloth with a mild detergent in the case of stubborn dirt is sufficient for cleaning solid wood and veneer surfaces. Wet surfaces should be dried immediately with a cloth.
The iconic Butterfly Stool by the Japanese designer Sori Yanagi is a classic piece of furniture that uniquely combines Eastern forms with the plywood moulding technique developed by Charles and Ray Eames.
