The new everyday vintage.
We believe in research, recycling and design culture.
Set up in 2008, the VLab Design projects stems out from our passion for vintage aestethics and our aim is to give new life to those design pieces that have lost their allure and that strongly claim it back. As we do so, we retain the history and the DNA of those pieces, as our philosophy is to value past times as a guarantee for future quality.
Our work finds inspiration even from basic shapes of recycled items, and we choose to transform them into high-end pieces of furniture thanks to our targeted creative process. We focus on designing new furniture, often thanks to the priceless help of knowledgeable craftsmen’s hands, as we are constantly attracted by the dialogue between past, present and future.
In 2016 Vlab meets Fikus: some of our pieces have found their home in the rooms of this boutique b&b in the countryside of Apulian Itria Valley, that has become our exhibition space and our creative laboratory, always open up to new influences.
Our motto “…life is never in our rooms. We die and we come back, as everything else”
(Ferzan Ozpetek, Mine Vaganti)
This is the portfolio of original pieces designed by the VLab team. Each item is unique in its own way, as those who have created them. Basically, we believe in uniqueness – that’s our philosophy. Our development process always starts with an emotion, because our aim is to amaze. Inspiration may derive even from an old object that has lost its function but has the potential to become subject of an original, innovative and green friendly design.
READY TO GO
Collection of revisited vintage pieces with VLab style.Sometimes even simply fixing a light ageing sign on an item can feed our creativity, and we are always pushed to go beyond what we see so that we allow ourselves to re-design it.
Our vintage furniture collection hand picked by VLab team members. We constantly look for pieces with character in our search and we aim for those that we think can be appreciated by vintage lovers as we are.
