10, Along with his colleagues Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. While textile design was the primary focus of Girard’s oeuvre, he was also admired for his work in the graphic arts as well as furniture, exhibition and interior design. Girard brought a sensuous playfulness to twentieth-century design that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism.
In cooperation with the Girard family, Vitra has selected a few striking motifs for these Graphic Boxes from the extensive holdings of the Girard estate in the Vitra Design Museum archives. With their distinctive designs, these high-quality cardboard boxes can serve as unique gift boxes or eye-catching storage containers.

12, The Officina collection explores the possibility of establishing a new creative language through the ancient fabrication process that is iron forging.
Throughout history, this technique has been used to create an infinite number of everyday objects and decorative arte facts. Following the tables, chairs and stools launched over the past two years, the collection now expands further with a series of accessories (from coat stands to a clothes valet to candelabras and mirror).
All these pieces feature a forged iron structure, with the allure of a raw material handed down through the centuries, alive, with those slight imperfections that once again make each item in this collection unique, with a profoundly refined and elegant spirit.
13, the collection « faux-semblants » is the perfect representation of the balance between design and graphics, between archetypal shapes and contemporary re-interpretation. This collection proposes objects which are both unique and multiple. The pure outlines of the vases are divided into many different dishes, destined for tableware, and all reveal an unexpected graphic univers.
« What was at stake in the project was to dramatize the utility in order to create an effect of surprise or to demonstrate how to lay a table completely, with only a vase » Rachel & Benoît Convers

20, Taf Architects about the control table lamp:
“The Control lamp is a unique and playful lamp with references to hi-fi and industrial machinery. The light and dimmer is controlled by a switch, referencing- volume controls, and is an inviting and simple way of interacting with the user. While designing the lamp, we were inspired by the idea of displaying the different lamp components on a serving plate – almost as a still life. It was a pragmatic approach to making a lamp by the simplest means, a reduced design beyond reduction.”

24, Pebble is a collection for serving cheese, designed with an eye for elegant visual presentation. The collection consists of four different utensils and a serving board in two sizes. With Pebble, designer Simon Legald has taken everyday utensils and given them an aesthetic boost: “We often put a lot of thought into choosing attractive service and cutlery, but forget the basic utensils we also bring to the table. I wanted to design utensils for serving cheese that you can enjoy having out,” he explains. The cutting utensils have a minimalistic, molded expression, which still clearly conveys their function. With a knife for soft cheeses, a plane for hard cheeses and a slicer for medium cheeses, as well as a cheese fork, you can put together a complete cheese set. All of the utensils have comfortable silicone handles, and both handle and blade are in a masculine black. The dark look is reflected in the serving board, which is made from black marble. A recess in the tray acts as a decorative detail and gives you a place to put your finger when lifting it off the table. The board is available in two versions: an oblong board and a squarer board, allowing different serving possibilities.
Pebble takes its name from the rounded design that unifies the collection, from the curves on the cutting utensils to the organic shape and smoothed edges of the serving board. The various parts of the collection can be used individually, but also complement each other. The interaction between the matt, yielding silicone and the polished, hard marble creates an exclusive and modern look. The Pebble collection is a must for the cheese or breakfast table, while the boards are also perfect for serving cold meats and snacks or as decoration in your interior design.

The family is now being extended with three new and tempting color shades which invite you to create varied expressions and stylish ambiences in your interior – a sophisticated dark blue, a clear and lively red and a calm and harmonious dusty green. Small furniture pieces are ideal for adding color and can act as a unifying element in your home decor. Whether you are fond of the monochrome, or a true fan of color, the mobile Block tables are ideal for just that purpose. Block has a functional and charming design that can work anywhere in your home. The table is easy to move around by use of the handles which are natural extensions of the table’s legs. Designer Simon Legald was inspired by the classic trolley table which he has updated and made his own with simple, yet impactful means. Block’s rounded shape, contrasting materials and the combination of craft and industry leaves the designer’s signature on the design and gives the table its unique expression. You can use Block as a serving trolley or side table, in the kitchen, as a bedside table, for a home bar or in the children’s room. The look of the table can easily be changed, depending on the surroundings in which you place the table and how you style it. Use the red table as an eye catcher or the dark blue as a refreshing alternative to black. The green version adds balance and brings nature to mind, or you can choose one of the neutral shades for timeless elegance.
