Vitra Design.

A Real Architecture Wonder.

Located adjacent to the Vitra Design Museum in a smaller structure also designed by Frank Gehry, the Vitra Design Museum Gallery features current perspectives. It has opened the doors to the public in 1989 and has enjoyed widespread acclaim in the almost three decades since.

The Vitra Design Museum numbers among the world's leading museums of design. It is dedicated to the research and presentation of design, past and present, and examines design's relationship to architecture, art and everyday culture.

The Vitra Schaudepot which was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, presents approximately 400 key objects from the extensive collection and hence resembles one of the largest permanent collections and research sites on modern furniture design world-wide. The annual presentation at the Vitra Schaudepot reveals the collection in a fresh light every year. Vitra is a Swiss family-owned furniture company with headquarters in Birsfelden, Switzerland. It is the manufacturer of the works of many furniture designers.

Vitra is also known for the works of notable architects that make up its premises in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in particular the Vitra Design Museum.

The VitraHaus, built by Herzog & de Meuron, is Vitra’s flagship store and home to the Vitra Home Collection. Here, you can view furniture arrangements in different design styles, which include both the great Vitra classics and the latest contemporary designs.

This means that you can find inspiration for your home, explore your taste in design and try out, order and purchase furniture and design objects. Enjoy the view from the loft and then set off on a tour of discovery: in addition to the showroom over four floors, a shop, the Lounge Chair Atelier and the Café await you on the ground floor.

Here are some impressions of both the VitraHaus and the Vitra Museum. It is really worth a visit!
