get to know more Josh Itiola, the artist behind Vitsœ
New York-based Interior and furniture consultant, Josh Itiola is the designer, photographer, and artist behind Vitsœ: a furniture brand with more than 60 years which has the major goal of making long-living designs.
“What inspires me about my space is what I bring into it — my objects — and constantly arranging them to have little lives of their own,” says Josh Itiola, for Way by Parker.
Josh Itiola's personal Instagram can easily get confused with his inspo account A.K.A. Disegno Centrale — that's because, between projects and designs, we found shots of his home and places he visited that are really inspiring. It took just a few scroll downs in his profile for us to spot some of our fave designs, like the Le Corbusier Chair.
His visual references & home decor are an extension from work, in the better way possible, since Vitsœ's purpose is to allow more people to live better, with less, discreet, and adaptable products.
The brand actually is lasting for generations.
Niels Vitsœ was the company’s founder who, along Otto Zapf, established the business as the makers of long-living furniture designed by Dieter Rams, in 1959.
We have consistently stood up to a world that has favoured new over better. We encourage customers to start with a small amount and add to it as their lives develop, supported all the way by our very best customer service.
The brand has a huge range of furniture classics, but the big highlight from Vitsœ projects is the 620 Chair Programme — hand-made since 1962.
The 620 Chair Programme is not just a chair, it is an adaptable piece of furniture that can be joined with other chairs to form a multi-seat sofa. Designed by Dieter Rams for Vitsœ in 1962 and constructed to last a lifetime, this piece was immortalized in leather.
The highest-quality materials are used throughout to achieve a degree of comfort that often surprises the first-time sitter, and the durable patina of leather brings the true delight of the 620 when you take a seat.
To ensure the chair that will endure for decades, the finest traditional upholstery skills have been updated, a point strengthened by the choice of an exquisite full-grain leather that will only improve with age.
Vitsœ shops can be found in London, England; Royal Leamington Spa, England; Munich, Germany; New York, United States; and Los Angeles, United States.
