Suppliers Vitra Mixing legacy products with work from new designers S wiss furniture brand Vitra is dedicated to improving office spaces through design. Its products are for both the home and office and are an inspiring mix of legacy pieces and current designs and designers. Founded in 1950 as a family-owned company, Vitra now has a global presence that's steeped in design credibilit­y. The brand has a Vitra Campus and Museum in Switzerlan­d, dedicated to design and architectu­re projects that have been designed by leading global architects. Interestin­gly, the Vitra Fire Station on the Vitra Campus, Weil am Rhein, was the first-ever built architectu­ral work by Zaha Hadid. Today it functions as an exhibition space. Its award-winning products can be found in a number of high-profile business settings, including Dubai Internatio­nal Airport and the Tate Modern in London. New additions for 2020 include the Chaise Tout Bois - the only chair by the legendary French 'constructe­ur' and designer Jean Prouvé that is made entirely out of wood. A classic from the extensive range is Stephan Hürlemann's Dancing Wall ( pictured below right), which is a mobile par tition that can be used to flexibly divide offices into zones, while providing ver tical work space. The Middle East team is in Dubai and it has a presence at both Swisscotec in D3 and Ikonhouse in Al Serkal Avenue. In 2018 Vitra collaborat­ed with Dubai Institute of Design and Innovation to present re-imagined perspectiv­es of its iconic Panton chair.
