Dining Table Vitra Luxembourg

Vitra Plate Dining Table

Finely balanced proportions and the subtle interplay of planes and curves give the Plate Dining Table an unassuming, refined appearance that can be complemented by a wide variety of chairs, both contemporary and classic. The deft combination of aesthetic elements and structural details make the Plate Dining Table seem immediately familiar and perfectly at home in any interior.

Short biographie of Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the 'super normal' design philosophy:

rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results, he often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development and refinement.

He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.

Vitra Akari 16a

Vitra Akari Light Sculptures

'The harshness of electricity is transformed through the magic of paper back to the light of our origin – the sun – so that its warmth may continue to fill our rooms at night.' Isamu Noguchi

The Akari Light Sculptures are luminaires handcrafted out of washi paper in Japan. In 1951 the Japanese-American artist, sculptor and designer Isamu Noguchi began work on this series, which eventually comprised more than 100 table, floor and ceiling lamps. The name 'akari' that Noguchi chose for these objects stands for 'light' in Japanese, connoting both illumination and physical lightness


Short biography of Isamu Noguchi

The oeuvre of Japanese-American artist and designer Isamu Noguchi is unusually multi-faceted, ranging from the fine arts to industrial design. Since 2002, Vitra has produced re-editions of his designs in cooperation with the Isamu Noguchi Foundation in New York.

Vitra Eames House Bird - walnut

Charles and Ray Eames discovered a black bird figure on one of their many extensive travels.

The Eames House Bird from Vitra, made of alder wood in a black lacquer finish, is an understated yet expressive object, and a perfect decorative addition to any interior.

Chaise Vitra 03

Vitra .03 - new colours

 

The aesthetic hallmark of the .03 chair is its sleek, slim shape – a design that can be seen as an expression of the concept 'less is more'. At the same time, the chair is unexpectedly comfortable: made of resilient polyurethane integral foam, the linear shape of the seat shell adapts to the body. When the sitter leans back, the upper part of the backrest yields slightly – a pleasant sensation created by the integrated leaf springs. The extraordinary comfort of .03 is first revealed upon use.


Short biography of Maarten Van Severen

The designer Maarten Van Severen started creating furniture in the mid-1980s, initially producing the pieces himself in his Ghent workshop. His designs are characterized by their simple form and superb comfort. The collaboration with Vitra began in 1996, resulting in the Van Severen Collection.

Wall clock Vitra Luxembourg

Vitra Popsicle Clock

America around 1950 was a place of growing economic prosperity and unfailing belief in progress. Designer George Nelson conceived a variety of lamps, clocks and other accessories, aiming to introduce modern design into American homes at that time. He and the employees of his design office relentlessly pursued this objective into the 1970s, creating, for example, a range of diverse wall clocks. Equipped with high-quality quartz movements, the collection of Wall Clocks from Vitra includes designs to suit almost every taste and fancy


Short biographie of Georg Nelson

George Nelson is regarded as one of the most important figures in American design. Active as an architect, a product and exhibition designer and a writer, he was a leading voice in the discourse on design and architecture over several decades.

Resting animals Vitra Luxembourg

Vitra Resting Animals

As part of a research project on the connection between humans and everyday things, the Swedish design duo Front asked people to identify the most meaningful objects in their lives. Many answers were related to animal figures. Also drawing on previous studies devoted to the sleeping and hibernation habits of animals, Front poured all of these observations into the development of their Resting Animals: a collection of slumbering creatures. The largest is a knit-covered bear, which can be used as a stool. The smaller cat and two birds in different sizes are decorative ceramic figures. Either separately or arranged as a group, the reposing animals radiate a sense of peace and tranquility.
