Marking an opportunity for the public to visit Vitra’s New York Studio (by appointment only) from until May 18th, the installations are designed to inspire and underscore the potential for flora to enliven home and office spaces.
botanical artist Lutfi Janania by Ricardo RiveraTo celebrate Vitra’s recently released Flower Guide and a new introduction to the Vase Découpage collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, NYCxDESIGN will curate an installation in Vitra’s Madison Avenue Studio that anticipates the May 14 launch of the Museum of Arts and Design’s Flower Craft exhibition. Vitra’s Flower Guide is a quick reference to how to style playful, engaging, organic installations that bring a natural freshness to any space. Featuring Vitra vases, the beautifully-illustrated guide celebrates the potential for floral installations to bring a seasonal style and flare to the office and home spaces that we inhabit.
Lutfi Janania will take over the Vitra Studio with a unique installation of floral artistry inspired by the Vitra Flower Guide. The installation will set the stage for two special conversations during NYCxDESIGN:
