In the literature, there are different specifications for the models 601 and 602.

The differences between the two models are described below. The Vitsoe sales brochure from 1981 serves as the source:

Both models have a body-shaped, flat upholstered shell with a pair of narrow, T-shaped feet.

The seat shell is made of glass fibre reinforced polyester.

The flat foam and felt upholstery is attached with screws in version 601 and can be easily replaced.

The armchairs of version 602 are upholstered on both sides and optionally covered with fabric or leather (also on the back).

Both versions are available with a low or high backrest.

The outside of the back shell is lacquered in light grey or matt black for version 601. Leather and fabrics are available for the covers (as of 1981).
