Back to the future with the installation TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE prolific creator Virgil Abloh for which he reinterprets iconic pieces of French Jean Prouvé and brothers Eames from the archives of the Swiss publisher Vitra.

A new page opens in the epic of Virgil. The artistic director of the Louis Vuitton men's collections and his own brand Off-White again briefly released podiums to join the design scene. After a series of furniture and accessories for Ikea, he signs TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE in collaboration with Vitra on the occasion of Art Basel.

It is in the fire station created by the architect Zaha Hadid on the Vitra Campus in Germany - turned into a real time capsule installation time - that the American jack-of-ally imagined the interior of a youngster of today in 2035. To do this, Virgil Abloh has returned to the publisher's bestseller archive to reinterpret and inspire new generations.


Fascinated by the work of Jean proved, he rethinks the Anthony chair from a Plexiglas seat resting on a lacquered metal base adorned with bright orange. Just like the lamp Small Stem that he reinterprets in a neo-industrial style.

Among the flagship creations on display are also the stool B of Charles and Ray Eames and the Ball chair imagined by Eero Aarnio. In this setting on the border between the past and the future is also exposed a modular shelf composed of ceramic blocks numbered from 1 to 999.

A collection available in limited edition and to discover until 31 July 2019.
