London Design Festival 2008 (6): Pillips de Pury | Vitra Limited Edition 2007 | Kimono Chair by Tokujin Yoshioka

Visiting Phillips de Pury’s premises during during London Design Festival proved to be visiting a chair addict’s Walhalla.

Apart from my normal curiosity, the main teaser was that Phillips the Pury had teamed up with Vitra and had the entire Vitra Edition 2007 on show. The front desk lady told me that they were on sale at the auction, but the catalog doesn’t mention them as being for sale.

One of the items I love on show is this very poetic Kimono Chair of Tokujin Yoshioka.

Update September 26
The lady was right and not right, the Vitra edition pieces were on private sale I now learn from an earlier press release, but I understood from her that they were on auction. Maybe my Dunglish…
