The furniture whisperer
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/24/2018
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
For the Graphic Wall Panels, Vitra consulted with the Girard family to select the Tree of Life motif. It was originally part of a building designed by Alexander Girard for his exhibition of folk art at HemisFair '68, the World's Fair in San Antonio, Texas. The exhibition was entitled 'The Magic of a People', with the Tree of Life as a striking decorative element that embellished the visitor entrance. The metal plate of the Graphic Wall Panels is printed in multiple layers, which gives it a threedimensional, enamel-like surface.
