From 8-10 February Vij5 participated in one of the most beautiful (at least, we think) design events of the Netherlands: OBJECT Rotterdam! A must-see for collectors, professionals and other design enthusiasts.
Vij5 was present at the first floor of the characteristic HAKA building: an amazing fully stripped architectural monument dating back to the thirties. The building turned out to be the perfect backdrop for the Vij5 collection.
New in the Vij5 collection
At OBJECT Rotterdam, Vij5 officially launched 3 new products in the Vij5 collection! The brand new BL28 LED by David Derksen as a new version of the Copper & Brass Lights family. Updated to today with better light quality and a LED light source. The Tilt Bar Stool by Floris Hovers is also new in the collection and comes available in several colours which were shown at OBJECT for the first time. The Glint Light by Susanne de Graef will launch soon, but the prototypes of both the wall version in warm-black as the pendant version in champagne were shown in this beautiful setting.
The OBJECT fair is a platform for the latest limited editions and one-offs from well-known and upcoming designers working in different design disciplines and with various materials. OBJECT is thé place where the cutting edge between design, crafts, fashion, architecture and art becomes evident.
Participants can only enter by invitation since OBJECT is a curated fair, which means designers are carefully selected to keep the right balance between well-known names and upcoming talents, different design disciplines and materials, applied design and more autonomous installations. This year the fair was even bigger and better featuring work by over 150 designers and over 6.000 square meters full of inspiration.
