Virgil Abloh builds a brutalist furniture collection that extends itself to the urban landscape. Consisting of a total of 20 pieces, the range is curated by the well-known fashion designer for Parisian studio Galerie Kreo. This is not a first for the creative as he has had collaborations with mega-brands like IKEA.
The silhouettes are quite extensive and one can find anything from coffee tables and seats to vases and mirrors. Virgil Abloh has titled this brutalist furniture collection 'Efflorescence,' perhaps in references to the very specific choice of spray paint he has employed throughout. While the graffiti is surely a nod to underground youth and street culture movements, Abloh sought out to suspend this brutalist furniture collection "somewhere between sculpture and useful object."
