The VitraHaus becomes a real loft
The Israeli design duo Raw-Edges has created a new kind of space, composed by living areas and workspace areas, employing Vitra and Artek forniture.
VitraHaus, in Weil am Rhein, is a place for exhibition and it was imagined by Herzog & de Meuron in 2010.
“Our installation focuses on a busy, creative, young family. We have actually created a space for ourselves, for both of us and our two daughters. We want to show how a space can function equally well for parents and kids alike – for living, playing or working.” Raw-Edges, said.
As in other projects, they searched three elements: movement, improvisation and surprise and they rich them creating particular playful spaces. For their installation, Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay have chosen different materials and colors and they have employed them in cheerful and unexpected arrangements.
