OTW. While the acronym stands for "Off The Wall", the Vans OTW collection stands as a unique brand that celebrates the sophisticate in all of us, especially the natural growth of young creatives. You might have noticed in the OTW brand video, the modernist environment where our brand advocates occupied. This is the Case Study House #22 also known as Stahl House.
Here's a few interesting facts about The Stahl House and you'll understand why this house was appropriate to showcase the OTW collection.

  • The house was designed by Pierre Koeing. According to Wikipedia,
    "Koenig practiced mainly on the west coast and was most notable for the design of the Case Study House No. 21 and 22 in 1960. Both 21 (the Bailey House) and 22 (the Stahl House) were constructed on dramatic, otherwise-unbuildable sites."
  • The house was used in numerous fashion shoots, ad campaigns and at least five films.
  • The Stahl House was ranked as one of the top 150 structures according to the American Institute of Architects.
