Never one not to push the boundaries of culture and lifestyle, Virgil Abloh has revealed a new homeware installation reinventing the way we decorate our homes.
The Off-White founder, in collaboration with design company Vitra, has created an installation looking at what the future of home decorating might look like, while also releasing three limited-edition homeware items.
Abloh has been on a mission in recent years to shift cultural ideas away from mass produced fast fashion, disposable furniture, and waste, to a more design-led, individualist approach to everyday items.
The Off-White trailblazer has created the installation titled TWENTYTHIRTHYFIVE as a potential example of what our home decor might look like in the year 2035.
The Virgil Abloh Vitra collection is being housed at the Vitra Campus, Weil am Rhein, Germany, but will visit other locations around the world throughout the year.
In addition to the futuristic take on homeware, Abloh and Vitra have designed three items which are available to buy for a limited time.
The pair have created an armchair, featuring an orange laccquer finish and plexiglass seat. A Petite Potence lamp that includes orange wiring and metal framework, and a orange ceramic decorative block designed with the installation’s name.
The Virgil Abloh Vitra collection will open to the public from 12 June to the end of July. Tickets to the installation can be found at Vitra Campus online.
