Virgil Abloh and Vitra have collaborated on a bold furniture collection inspired by the designs of French designer Jean Prouvé. The limited-edition collection sees Abloh reinterpret two of Jean Prouvé's most-loved designs, the 'Petite Potence' wall light and 'Antony' armchair, each limited to 300 pieces. In addition to the lamp and chair, Abloh has also designed a ceramic storage block.

The collection was launched to coincide with Abloh's TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE installation at the Fire Station on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany, where the designer has presented his vision of “Past/Present” and “Future" living using designs from Vitra's archives.

The three products are available to purchase exclusively from the Vitra Campus and, for European residents, at Vitra’s online store until 31st June. North American customers will have a chance to view the exhibition when it comes to Vitra’s soon-to-open New York City showroom in the fall, at which time a range of different products will available online for U.S. customers only.

Now sold-out, we have managed to secure one 'Antony' armchair. This controversial piece will be on display in our Norwich store come August 2019.
