As part of its latest collaboration with artists, designers, and architects, Vitra has worked with Virgil Abloh on a series of limited edition items that will be on display and available for purchase in an Art Basel installation titled TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE.
The installation boasts three pieces: the Ceramic Block, each with its own identifying number; the Petit Potence, an orange wall lamp that riffs on a 1942 Jean Prouvé design; and the Atony armchair, another Prouvé-inspired piece with a curved plexiglass shell and metal structure. Speaking about the designs, Abloh said “I loved the idea of introducing some Prouvé classics to a generation today that might not know the importance of his work.”
Each item has been produced in limited quantities and can be found on display at the fire station on the Vitra campus at Art Basel from June 13 to June 16. The Ceramic Blocks are available for €149 each (approximately $167), the Petit Potence costs €1,489 ($1,685), and the Atony chair is available for €2,489 ($2,816). The items will also be available to cop in Europe via Vitra’s online store from today, June 12. Take a closer look at Abloh’s latest collab in the gallery above.
