Vitra Names Folio Source as Sales Representation Partners in Chicago
Vitra announced Jan. 27 that it has selected Folio Source to represent their contract product portfolio, including Artek, in the greater Chicago marketplace.
“Chicago represents an important market for our sales strategy,” says Vitra North American president, Melissa Shelton. “Chicago has long been a hub of important activity in our industry, and as that landscape evolves, Ed and the Folio team will develop new opportunities allowing us to deepen our relationships with a broader segment of the A&D and dealership community.”
“Vitra is an ideal partner as they help us deliver on our mission of offering innovative products for the built environment,” says Folio Source founders, Ed and Kate Connealy. “Vitra has a singular product offering that speaks to this moment of providing best in class design solutions with products that are agile and transversal in scope.”
Vitra, a family-owned business for eighty years, operates contract and residential sales channels across the United States and Canada. Ranging from design classics to product solutions that support today’s connected and distributed workforce.
Vitra is guided by the idea of linking great designers with the company’s technical and cultural know-how to create relevant products and concepts for homes, offices and public spaces. Developed and engineered in Switzerland, Vitra’s products are used by architects, planners, corporations and private citizens around the world to create inspiring environments. Vitra’s portfolio includes great classics of the twentieth century. Yet classics were not always classics – they started out by breaking conventional rules. In this spirit, Vitra works with contemporary designers to develop innovative solutions to old and new problems. Now in its third generation as a family company, Vitra aims to establish and maintain long-term relationships with designers, customers and employees. In keeping with this goal, product longevity has been a defining principle of the company from the beginning.
