Vitra and G-Star Raw Collaboration
Launched at Milan furniture fair, at CDW we were able to witness the Prouvé RAW. The Office Edition collection is the second produced by Dutch denim brand G-Star RAW and Swiss firm Vitra using original designs by the French Modernist architect and designer.
Prouvé, who was born in 1901 and died in 1984, pioneered the use of lightweight folded steel in both furniture and architecture.
We saw updated versions of furniture and lighting pieces that were first created by Prouvé for the offices of French industrial companies in the 1940s.
The 10 pieces in the range, including chairs, desks, tables, cabinets, desk lamps and wall-mounted reading lights, were initially developed for G-Star RAW’s new OMA-designed headquarters in Amsterdam, which opened last year.
G-Star RAW and Vitra worked with Prouvé’s family to update the designs, developing a new palette of materials and coloured finishes. All the pieces are made from either steel, solid timber or a combination of the two.
This is an incredible collection that should be considered by all…
