UNI­VER­SAL AC­CLAIM

La Pelota is a must-stop for de­sign lovers in Mi­lan and this year’s oc­cu­pant—the cult favourite brand Vi­tra—made a mem­o­rable splash. The Swiss fur­ni­ture man­u­fac­turer brought to­gether a smat­ter­ing col­lec­tion of old and new in an ex­hi­bi­tion called Type­cast­ing: An Assem­bly of Iconic, For­got­ten and New Vi­tra Char­ac­ters. Cu­rated by Paris-based de­signer Robert Stadler, the show­case fea­tures 200 ob­jects from the Vi­tra ar­chives, next to pro­to­types, spe­cial edi­tions as well as new prod­ucts, with each piece re­flect­ing on the so­cial func­tion of fur­ni­ture. Lead­ing de­sign­ers such as Kon­stantin Gr­cic, Bar­ber & Os­gerby, and Ro­nan and Er­wan Bouroul­lec have also con­trib­uted their ideas for a col­lec­tive liv­ing space. Avail­able at Vi­tra by Gra­funkt
