Vitra, Minotti, Poltrona Frau, Zanotta, Miniforms, and Acerbis (founded in 1870) are among the top brands of Italian design collections which use different materials (glass, wood, metal, stone) and various traditional processes. While Poltrona Frau is highly valued for its use of various woods and natural fabrics/textiles obtained through traditional artisanal manufacturing processes, the Vitra collections found at important resource outlets such as Mohd focus entirely on the eco-sustainable principle and respect for the land by using wood as the primary material as well as glass and stone.
Vitra’s respect for nature is also evinced in its particular focus on the Feng Shui aspect of interior décor (another valuable trend which is quickly catching on in the Western world); its collections are especially designed to conform to the surroundings and clear negative energy by eliminating ‘clutter’ space, thus allowing the chi energy (and its health benefits) to flow unrestricted.
