Antony

Jean Prouvé, 1954

alt
The Antony chair by Jean Prouvé was designed in the early 1950s for the Cité Universitaire in Antony near Paris. With its dynamically curved wooden shell and characteristic metal base, this small armchair was one of the French designer's last furniture creations. Virgil Abloh pays tribute to the iconic design with an updated version in his installation TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE. He has transformed the armchair by giving it a plexiglass shell that reveals the supporting metal structure, which is further accentuated by a bright orange lacquer finish. This version is available until 16 June on the Vitra Campus and in Europe in the Vitra Online Shop in a numbered exhibition spin-off limited to 300 pieces.
