The quality of furnishings does not only manifest itself in large objects. As important as the choice and composition of furniture, lighting and textiles are for our sense of well-being at home. It's the small things - the various accessories, pictures, plants, mementos and occasional finds we have collected - that play a major role in our emotional attachment to the home. In recent decades only a few designers like Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and George Nelson, have been aware of this. Starting with the same ideas in the mid twentieth century they created furnishings and equipment in which small things always had an important place. It is with this thought in mind that the Classic Trays now being brought onto the market by the Vitra design Museum should be viewed.

The classic trays are available in five designs with artwork and patterns by iconic design legends Charles & Ray eames, Alexander Girard and George Nelson.

George Nelson

George Nelson (1908–1986) was an American industrial designer, and one of the founders of American Modernism. While Director of Design for the Herman Miller furniture company, both Nelson, and his design studio, George Nelson Associates, Inc., designed much of the 20th century's most iconic modernist furniture. George Nelson attended Yale University, not originally intending become an architect. He happened upon the architecture school while ducking into the building to get out of the rain, and was impressed by an exhibition inside. He graduated with a degree in architecture in 1928. During his final year at Yale, Nelson was hired by the architecture firm Adams and Prentice as a drafter.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra’s approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company’s contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
