OMA + Knoll Debut Furniture At Prada Fashion Show
January 18, 2013
OMA and Prada aren’t strangers to collaboration. The Dutch architecture firm has spent the better part of a decade creating innovative designs for the famed fashion line. OMA/AMO’s latest project, a 12-piece line of furniture created with iconic manufacturer Knoll, recently debuted at the Prada F/W 2013 menswear fashion show in Milan. And yes, there was blue foam.
Swivel chairs made of pink, white, and blue foam, were staged alongside flimsy Plexiglas tables showcasing candy-colored, cardboard-crafted typewriters and rotary dial phones. The whole collection looked like a warped set from Mad Men, a far cry from the slick, dandyish show OMA and Prada put on last year. Here, black leather sink chairs are transformed into foam recliners encased in walls of Plexiglas, while films showing images of domestic interiors flickered in the background.
