VITRA REPLICA

Inspired by Vitra

Vitra, a historic leader in the production of designer furniture, is committed to creating intelligent, high-quality solutions for the home, office, outdoor and public spaces. Products and concepts are created in Switzerland as a result of a careful design development process, combining the company's engineering excellence with the creative genius of world-renowned designers. Outside, Vitra offers innovative solutions and materials that ensure maximum durability and resistance to time and weather conditions. For over 50 years, Vitra has been creating innovative, functional and effective office furniture. In the field of office furniture, Vitra is constantly looking for solutions for modern and open offices in which to communicate and exchange ideas and projects with the best. When it comes to furniture for public spaces, this is an opportunity for Vitra to show the positive impact of design in any environment, including airports, libraries, school buildings, public offices, offices, hospitals, restaurants and hotels.

Vitra products, clean design icons

Vitra offers a rich collection of furniture developed over the years by world-famous designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Verner Panton, Antonio Citterio, Philippe Starck, Borek Šípek, Mario Bellini, Glen Oliver Löw, Dieter Thiel, Jasper Morrison, Alberto Meda and Jean Prouvé. Vitra furniture is solutions that fit any environment to arrange a style using iconic products from the international design scene. For home, Vitra offers a wide range of armchairs, sofas, tables, chairs and design complements. Among them, the Lounge Chair and the Plastic Armchair collection by Charles and Ray Eames. Vitra children's furniture is also very popular, including the famous Eames Elephant in the shape of an elephant, or Panton Junior - a children's version of the iconic Verner Panton chair. The idea behind the Vitra Home collection is a collage. This suggests that a bustling space cannot be achieved by adhering to a unified plan, but rather it would gain personality by combining old and new, classic and contemporary styles. It's the logic that inspired the creation of furnishings, such as the Alcove sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, to create a private and informal corner in the everyday work environment.

History of Vitra company, history of design

Vitra was founded in 1950 as a family business in Weil am Rhein, Germany by Willi Fehlbaum, owner of a furniture store in Basel. After a fire that destroyed the factories in 1981, the company handed over a new factory to the English architect Nicholas Grimshaw. Next to the aluminum hall, which was ready for production just six months after the fire, Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza built a new production facility in 1986. In 1989, Frank Gehry planned a new building to join the other two; the same Gerhy built the "Vitra Design Museum", which was originally intended to house the private furniture collection of Rolf Fehlbaum, the owner of Vitra. In 1993, Zaha Hadid added a fire station, which today houses a collection of chairs from the Design Museum. In the same year, a conference pavilion designed by Tadao Ando was built. In 1994, the administrative headquarters of Vitra moved to the headquarters in Birsfelden (also designed by Frank Gehry) and Alvaro Siza added the store building to the Weil am Rhein office. Today, the Vitra campus in Weil am Rhein, near Basel, houses the Vitra Design Museum, VitraHaus and other buildings of world-renowned architects, including Herzog & De Meuron. Nowadays, companies are more and more often assessed in terms of environmental, social and economic awareness. In his vision, Vitra does not see this as an imposed obligation, but as an integral aspect of the design, part of the company's culture since then. Furniture is valuable to Vitra when its production, use and recycling do not harm people and the environment. In keeping with the Charles and Ray Eames tradition that influenced Vitra's approach to sustainability in many different ways, product durability is critical to a company that can contribute to sustainability; short-lived lifestyle is avoided by all means. Examples include some classic pieces from the historic Vitra collections. Handed over by various owners, they ended up in museums. At Vitra, the production of sustainable products goes through an intense phase of pre-production development, during which materials of the highest quality are selected and tests are carried out to simulate 15 years of use. Every single element should then be easily replaceable and eventually recycled.
