We’ve long loved Vitra for its breadth of modern accessories, including Nelson clocks, the Eames House Bird and the many quirky designs from Alexander Girard. Now, you’ll find much more from Vitra at Lumens.com, as we’ve added a number of new and classic furniture pieces, including lounge chairs, dining furniture, tables and more. Here’s a look at a few new additions we’re especially excited about:
Grand Repos Lounge Chair and Ottoman by Antonio Citterio
With “wings” wrapping around the head and seat, this recent design from Antonio Citterio is a contemporary take on the classic wingback chair. But it’s not just all looks: the Grand Repos collection was built for supreme comfort. Generous padding, inviting armrests and a high backrest make this chair ideal for a lazy afternoon. Plus, a synchronized mechanism under the upholstery that adjust automatically to the user’s weight provides support to let the sitter move from upright to reclined smoothly and seamlessly. Available in 26 upholstery options.
Wood Table by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby
This new introduction from Vitra takes it back to basics, with minimal parts and ornamentation that make it a stable, easy piece for a variety of spaces. But while the Wood Table might appear simple, its fine detailing is what makes it stand apart: the oval profile of the solid wood legs; the rounded underside edge of the tabletop; and the aluminum bridges that connect the legs to keep the tabletop from warping. Available in 3 finishes and 4 sizes.
Heart Cone Chair by Verner Panton
One of the most famous Vitra designs, created by Verner Panton in the late 1950s. Panton spent some time experimenting with bright colors and geometric silhouettes (just ahead of the pop art movement), and one of the results was this almost cartoonish, heart-shaped chair that some interpret as a take on the classic wingback chair. Available in 8 fabrics, from subtle black or brown to a vibrant yellow or grassy green.
