Vitra

Classic. Modern. Sustainable.

Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany).

Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally functional, modern design I had looked at this piece in Vitra on a couple of visits and thought it looked like a cool piece to have on our wall that was both functional and sleek. All the bits and pieces that are floating around in your desk drawers finally have a home where everyone can find them and access them easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic product that brings life to a room. The uten.silo is the classic wall organizer whose design was edited by the grea Ingo Maurer. There's enough space to organize the most cluttered work area elegantly. The red color brings life to otherwise dull environment. Installation was simple...four screws and a level. A terrific product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great modern art as well as extremely functionable. Wanted to purchased this for years and finally did so and I am glad I did. This is a great piece to hang on your wall to keep clutter off of your desk while having a modern piece hanging on the wall. Would recommend.
