My living room is full of Vitra chairs, as of you might have realized. I’m an absolut fan. I got my first chair when I worked for SWISS and we had a partnership with the brand. We redesigned all the SWISS lounges and the new head offices with Vitra. During that time I bought my first chair for my bedroom. But then I moved out an need more chairs for the living room table. I got my hands on 6 second hand Eames Plastic Chairs from a young architecture student who’s an absolut design lover.
Talking about Eames and Vitra – Whats what, right? I’ll tell you: Charles and Ray Eames were a couple in Amerika who designed the famous chairs and Vitra is a production company in Switzerland who produces and sells the chairs in their name. Vitra is actually a Swiss furniture manufacturer that works really closely with various designers. Vitra has a huge Campus in Weil am Rhein that brings together the commercial and cultural aspects of the company and includes a museum in Basel that I really want to visit.
The Eames Plastic Chairs are currently having a revival. If you scroll through Pinterest you’ll know what I mean. Most of them are white, but Vitra actually has a huge variety of colors and shapes. Currently Vitra opened a pop up store in Zürich, where you can configure your personal chair.Thats where I made this grey rocking chair in the color “basalt” nicely matching the rest of my interior.
Talking about Interior, how do you like my Christmas tree? I’m an absolut fan of the decoration I got at the new H&M Store in Zürich and also love my little stuffed unicorn. I changed the picture on the Samsung Frame TV to match the decoration 🙂 As you can see I really enjoying the festive spirit. I love listing to all the classic Christmas songs and walking trough the City decorated with all the magical lights. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
