Virgil Abloh equipped the installation with various furniture and objects, including creations by Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Aarnio and Jean Prouvé - some in their original form, others creatively modified. Fascinated by Jean Prouvé’s creations, he was particularly interested in the work of the Frenchman: "I loved the idea of presenting some of Jean Prouvé’s classics to a generation that may not know the importance of his work. "He reinterpreted the Antony armchair and the Petite Potence wall lamp in the context of TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE.
The Antony chair is limited to 300 pieces, here is the number 007.
Developed in the early 1950s for the Cité Universitaire d’Antony, the chair’s original wooden shell was replaced by a new transparent plexiglass shell, revealing the supporting metal structure, and accentuated by a bright orange lacquered finish.
