In June 2019, Virgil Abloh, designer of both Off-White and Louis Vuitton’s Menswear, created an art installation and three limited-edition home design products with design company Vitra in conjunction with Art Basel. The most conceptual piece was the Ceramic Block wall. Abloh and Vitra developed 999 ceramic orange bricks, each of which are numbered and together formed a structural element of the “TWENTYTHIRTYFIVE” exhibition. Like much of Abloh’s oeuvre, the ceramic block is labeled in an almost scientific way, with the typography an important design element and no two alike. 

In late 2020, “Virgil Abloh c/o Vitra: US Edition” was released in baby blue online and with a livestream of a pop-up installation in Miami’s Design District.
