Vitra Color Block Throw
Material research primarily determines all of Hella Jongerius’ designs. Her vast portfolio includes single pieces exhibited at galleries, mass-produced products sold at retail stores, design of airliner interiors and even the redesign of the North Delegates’ Lounge at the UN Headquarters in New York. Works by Jongerius reside in the permanent collections of MoMA, Cooper Hewitt and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others. Her Color Block Throw (2016) features contrasting color blocks of varied intensity, with two-tone combinations of colored thread visible in the fringe at both ends and along the sides. Woven from extremely soft yet sturdy Peruvian highland wool. Made in Germany.
