At Milan furniture fair, Vitra presents new products stemming from collaborations with Antonio Citterio, Hella Jongerius, Jasper Morrison, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and G-Star. See some of Vitra’s highlights that caught my attention during iSaloni:

Grand Repos Vitra  Exclusive - Antonio Citterio for Vitra at iSaloni Grand Repos e1334943209930

‘The Grand Repos by Antonio Citterio unites the expertise of office chair technology with the comfort of a lounge chair. Grand Repos responds to every demand for comfortable seating like a considerate host and companion. The uphols3ered seat and backrest of the large, swivel chair accommodate movement and invite users to relax in different positions. Thanks to its bio-mechanical construction, the lounge chair adapts to any seated position. The angle of the seat and back follow synchronously the fluid movement of the user, the chair’s invisible mechanism adjusts to the user’s body weight and can be locked in any position. Ergonomics, movement and relaxation unite in the Grand Repos for unwinding at home.’

‘The Suita Sofa heralds a new phase in the collaboration between Vitra and Antonio Citterio that dates back to 1985. For the first time ever, this corresponds to a furniture type that the 1950-born Citterio has helped shape in a masterly manner to produce a modern, timelessly elegant sofa family for the living area.’

‘Like little protrusions in nature, Corniches by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are small shelves. “The same way that we hang our belongings on a rock jutting from a cliff before diving into the sea, we need small, informal storage in everyday life too”, explains Ronan Bouroullec. And this is the reason that Corniches are neither regular shelves nor simple horizontal surfaces, but rather individual, isolated protrusions in the environments that we create. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, as a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, Corniches are a new way to use the wall in the living space.’
