Design classic; Dorothee Becker organiser


Designed in 1969, but still in production by Vitra. This very clever organiser Utensilo. I fit well into any of the era’s that passed after it was designed. Plastic fantastic 70’s, bare 80’s and all the revivals of these since. But it’s timeless and simple design make it fit for any trend or style anyway. And it’s very practical!

Utensilo by Dorothee Becker

Created by Dorothee Becker it comes in three different colours: white, black and red. Try finding one on sites like eBay, but if you fail, there are lots of online shops selling new ones staring at around $250.

Inspired? The Homevoyeurs webshop sells many books about design classics and Vitra. For instance Project Vitra: Sites, Products, Authors, Museum, Collection, Signs from Birkhauser Architecture. The book costs $32.25 and is eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25!

Project Vitra began in 1957 in Birsfelden near Basel with the production of the furniture of Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson. Today Vitra is active and known throughout the world for its products and cultural initiatives, which are evidenced by the Vitra Design Museum, its collections, and the architecture of the firm s own corporate campus. Vitra sees itself first and foremost as a project driven by the desire and determination to design the world.

This ambition is also the driving force behind Project Vitra, which offers an inside look at the firm s collaboration with architects and designers, including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Alexander Girard, Tibor Kalman, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, SANAA, Jasper Morrison, Zaha Hadid, Hella Jongerius, Maarten Van Severen, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Jean Prouvé, Mario Bellini, Antonio Citterio, Alberto Meda, Verner Panton, Herzog and de Meuron, and many others. The copiously illustrated chapters with contributions by Alex Coles, Rolf Fehlbaum, Luis Fernandez-Galiano, Deyan Sudjic, and Alexander von Vegesack tell stories about the places, people, and products connected with Vitra. This overview is rounded off by a history of the firm and a comprehensive glossary.
