Vitra at Maison Objet 2015

Design legacy, as guided by children and grandchildren of famous creators, was another theme in development at this year’s Maison & Object. Vitra, which presented their “Home Complements” line of accessories and objects on the show floor, is working closely with artist Kori Girard, grandson of the late Alexander Girard. Well known as a careful preservationist of his own works, as well as objects that pleased him—Kori mentions a certain loaf of bread injected with formaldehyde among his grandfather’s archives—Alexander Girard was keenly aware of every technological advance related to how items might by shipped and stored. As a result of this, the family has a minutely catalogued larder of never-before produced textiles, objects and other works, and they are working with Vitra (Alexander Girard’s choice) to bring these pieces to market.
