Virgil Abloh hacks the Vitra archive to create vision of a home in 2035



Virgil Abloh has adapted the designs of Jean ProuvĂ© and the Eames’ to create his vision of the home of the future, which is installed in the Zaha Hadid-designed fire station at the Vitra Campus.

The designer delved into the Vitra archive to put together the exhibition Twentythirtyfive. He hacked and reimagined many of the furniture brand’s most iconic products to help him imagine the home of a young adult in 2035.

His vision includes a seesaw made out of Charles and Ray Eames’ Wire Chairs and a storage cabinet with bricks for shelves.

Three of his twists on the classics will be available to buy in a limited edition later today, via the Vitra website.
