Expect serious bargains at the Clerkenwell store on more than 1000 pieces, spanning from sofas, chairs and stools to dining tables, desks, coffee tables and storage units. Also in the mix are smaller accessories by Finnish brand Artek and Alexander Girard, special editions and iconic designs, starting from as little as £10. Contemporary names in the frame include Antonio Citterio, Barber Osgerby, Jasper Morrison, and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec – think catnip for collectors.
ABOVE: Lucky shoppers can nab Star Buys such as the classic ‘Noguchi Coffee Table’ by Isamu Noguchi at a reduced price. Bargains include the ‘Eames Plastic Side Chair DSR’ in poppy red and the ‘Soft Pad’ chair EA 208 by Charles and Ray Eames, ideal for a chic home office.
Star Buys include the classic ‘Noguchi Coffee Table’ by Isamu Noguchi in walnut (was £2,020, now £149); the sculptural ‘Tabouret Haut’ stool by Jean Prouvé in dark oak with Japanese red foot resting ring (was £595, now £49); the iconic ‘Soft Pad’ chair EA 208 by Charles and Ray Eames in clay premium leather (was £2,670, now £149); a set of four ‘Eames Plastic Chairs DSR’ in poppy red (was £1,000, now £199); and the ‘Cork Stool Model A’ by Jasper Morrison (was £355, now £10!), all prices including VAT. Star Buys only apply to the specific pieces labelled and displayed in the store windows, not like-for-like products, and you can only purchase one per person. They’ll go like hot cakes, on a first-come, first-served basis, so get in quick.
Vitra’s One Day Sale is at Vitra, 30 Clerkenwell Road, London EC1, from 9.30am to 4pm on Saturday 6 October 2018. See their Facebook event page for more terms and conditions.
