First Look: Vault by Vans x Modernica Collection

Two SoCal icons have partnered up for an exclusive capsule.

Fans of mid-century design are undoubtedly familiar with Modernica. The LA-based furniture company makes high-end, timeless pieces fitting of any Case Study house.

Nearly 25 years ago, the furniture company helped put the lost art of high-pressure fiberglass molding back on the map, utilising historic fiberglass presses and specialised machinery that’s been used for over three generations. And now they’ve used those practices to bring three iconic Vans patterns to life in classic shellchair form.

Returning the favour, Vans is releasing six matching silhouettes. See for yourself below.

Hey, fucker, that’s not all! Click below for a behind the scenes gallery of the Modernica workshop in DTLA. So rad to see these chairs being made by actual people, utilising the original machines, techniques, and craftsmanship. The product is super impressive at face value, but it’s pretty incredible to know that all this furniture is handmade in DTLA with sustainable, well-paying practices. Support hardworking people and give a damn for once in your stupid life.

The Vault by Vans x Modernica collection will be available on February 23, 2019. To learn more about the Vault by Vans x Modernica collection, visit
