    Vitra & Artek + Studio Ilse = Super Sweet Installation at Vitrahaus!

    16th May

    The first – and smokin’ hot – installation and collaboration between Vitra + Artek recently opened at VitraHaus loft in Weil am Rhein. Officially joining forces in 2013 after Vitra acquired Artek, the two furniture companies enlisted the help of Ilse Crawford of Studio Ilse who created a glorious space to introduce the union of the two brands.
