Collab Philadelphia Art Museum
Collab and the Philadelphia Museum of Art invite you to join us as we honor Rolf Fehlbaum, Chairman Emeritus of Vitra, with the 2014 Collab Excellance Award.
A visionary patron of design, Rolf Fehlbaum has made vitra, the family-owned Swiss furniture company, one of the most innovative firms in the world through his distinguished collaborations with contemporary,architects and designers. Renowned for the architecture of its campus, its Museum collections, and its editions of experimental furniture as well as for its products, Project Vitra began in 1957 when the company's founders began to produce furniture by Americans Charles Eames and George Nelson in Europe.
In conjunction with the Design Excellence Award, collab is proud to present the exhibition VITRA-DESIGN, ARCHITECTURE, COMMUNICATION: A EUROPEAN PROJECT WITH AMERICAN ROOTS in the Collab Gallery, featuring some 120 examples of furniture and design objects, videos, photographs, and publications.
