Vitra Pop-Up Store at BHV Marais: Customize Your Own Eames Plastic Chair
Did you see our recent article about the must-see art exhibitions of the season? Here’s something else to add to your agenda… since art and sculpture are not only in museums and you adore interactive shopping experiences. BHV Marais presents “Pop-Up Vitra”– the very first time that Vitra has installed a pop-up shop at the department store. Running for six weeks, it will showcase the iconic Eames Plastic Chair designed in 1948 by husband-and-wife team Charles (the architect) and Ray (the artist) Eames, America’s most influential and important industrial designers. Buy the chairs (from €230) and customize with your fabric of choice using BHV’s latest digital technology. Add to your shopping list neo-classic Vitra Home Accessories (from €35). You’ll find wish list objects of design (and desire) such as the Hang It All Out or the Eames elephant, George Nelson clocks, Arik Levy’s Toolbox, and other must-haves by top names in design like Alexander Girard, Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec, George Nelson, and Jasper Morrison. BHV Marais Access is via the 4th floor of the main building until 14th April, 2019. 42 rue de la Verrerie, 4th Metro: Hotel de Ville Open Sunday
