Celebrating 15 years of Ron Arad's Tom Vac chair, Vitra and Ron Arad have invited 20 leading architect and design studios to "tailor" a Tom Vac chair. Vitra will exhibit the completed pieces throughout the Clerkenwell Design Festival, culminating in an evening reception where Ron Arad will select the winning piece.
Inspired by Ron Arad's 1981 Rover Chair (his first piece of furniture) - we have turned our Tom Vac into a vehicle, a go-kart, adapting ready-made, reclaimed bike parts and scaffolding planks. Move Over Rover echoes the aesthetic of the Rover Chair, which was made from an old Rover car seat and bent scaffolding tubes. And it's a great ride too ;]
MOVE OVER ROVER, [re]design 2014
On display at the Vitra Showroom, 30 Clerkenwell Road, EC1M 5PG
