Vitra Black Collection

None More Black

Like no other colour, black evokes a timeless elegance. Vitra has applied this insight to the new Black Collection, which presents several new accessories and design objects along with re-editions of classic pieces – all in shades of black.

The Black Collection includes eleven classic pieces from some of the icons of mid 20th century design including Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson, Alexander Giraud and Dorethee Becker. The dark colours create a tasteful contrast to the playful organic shapes and original colours of these pieces.

How much more black could this be? The answer is none. None more black.

Hella Jongerius expands the Vitra Colour Library

‘The story of Hopsak is about creating something new not only by interweaving two different colours, but also by linking design history with today’s sensibility and by uniting the industrial world of the office with the softness of the home.’ (Hella Jongerius)
Hopsak fabric has been exclusively manufactured for Vitra since 1971. The expressive flat-weave material made of durable polyamide was originally offered in a palette developed by Alexander Girard for the Eames and Nelson collections. Over the years, Hopsak has been regularly updated and refined to meet changing technical requirements and colour preferences and is the reigning classic in the current portfolio of Vitra fabrics.
In collaboration with Hella Jongerius, Vitra has now completely revised the palette of Hopsak shades and expanded the selection to a total of 28 colours. The new palette of colours adds an inviting touch to the Eames Aluminium Group and other Vitra classics and opens up the fabric to new uses and contemporary designs.
