Chair 400

Designed in the sixties, chair 400 has a long history. This chair exudes nostalgia, but is entirely of this time. It has stood the test of time, since its design in the sixties.

The beautiful and sustainable materials used are of the best quality: the back and seat are made of sustainable wood and can be fully upholstered, the armrests are made of extremely strong bakelite and the frame is made of recycled steel.

The strong frame meets the high requirements of modern day education. This chair feels right at home in both classrooms and company restaurants.

In addition, the chairs are stackable.

Beautiful combinations

Chair 400 is perfect in combination with Bar stool 400. Bar stool 400 also fits in perfectly with our sturdy table Timber.
Of course the frame of Bar stool 400 can be epoxied in our new trendy colours.

Chair 400 is locally designed, developed and produced.

Local production: Vepa distinguishes itself by producing everything in its own local facilities. Our own wood, sheet steel, tubular steel, powder coating, wood spray, upholstery and final assembly departments form a complete production circle within a single company. By producing close to the sales market we keep distances small and CO2 emissions minimal.

LCA: By using independent LCAs (life cycle analysis) we reveal the environmental impact of a product. In product development we can greatly improve later designs by carrying out an LCA in the initial phase. In addition, an LCA also provides insight into the main factors responsible for the environmental damage. We then use these factors as starting points for redesign or as focal points for improvement. The LCAs are carried out in accordance with ISO 14044.

FSC® and PEFC: Vepa only uses certified wood. The FSC® and PEFC labels stand for responsible and sustainable forest management. Responsible forest management meets three criteria: it takes account of the environment, respects social aspects (such as the rights of local communities and forest workers) and is economically viable. Moreover, wood is the number one bio-based resource by nature.

TPAC (Timber Procurement Assessment Committee): Timber to be supplied or timber processed in products to be supplied must comply with the Dutch Procurement Criteria for Timber according to the Socially Responsible Procurement criteria. FSC® and PEFC are both systems that have been approved by the Dutch state secretary.

SRP criteria: Vepa complies with the SRP criteria drawn up by the central government. The national criteria for socially responsible procurement (SRP) for office furniture are available via the SRP criteria tool (
