Virgil Abloh & Vitra Bring Industrial Accents To Prouvé’s Iconic Furnishings

Dec 4, 2020

Category: Living

Virgil Abloh has built upon his multifaceted career in design with one specific ethos: the three-percent rule. Within, he states that any artistic or design-focused endeavor — be it architectural, product, or culturally-inclined — can be reevaluated and “recontextualized” through the use of small, subtle changes. Now, the modern-day renaissance man has joined forces with Switzerland’s Vitra to reinterpret three iconic products from renowned architect, Jean Prouvé.

Citing Prouvé as one of his biggest inspirations within the world of design, Abloh’s unique, three-piece collection takes shape alongside his signature, on-product symbolism. With subdued color theory at its core, the capsule develops through the use of an ethereal baby blue colorway and simplified industrial detailing, turning Prouvé’s Petite Potence lamp, Antony armchair, and ceramic block into something distant, but familiar. If you’re interested in acquiring a piece from this limited-run collection, head to Basic.Space, where you’ll be able to pick up the ceramic block for $179, the Potence lamp for $1,789, or the Antony armchair for $2,789.

Purchase: $179+
