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.
Vitra considers all furnishings to be a personal collage which changes over time with the tastes, preferences and the personal circumstances of the owner. In order to always present our visitors with a continuous flow of fresh ideas, the VitraHaus displays change on a regular basis, with new Vitra products continuously being added to the tour. All Vitra furniture and accessories seen can be ordered or purchased here.
The Lounge Chair Atelier gives you the chance to watch a stage of the chair’s production. Here you can witness the craftsmanship that goes into the Vitra design classic – the Lounge Chair – which was designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1956. In the VitraHaus, you can configure your own Lounge Chair & Ottoman with a selection of leathers, wooden shells and grains – and watch your own personal one-of-a-kind original be put together.An open workshop forms the centrepiece of the Vitra Atelier. It has been relocated from the company’s private production premises to the public campus area. Beginning with the story behind this icon of modern furniture design – produced by Vitra with the same care and precision for more than 50 years – the Vitra Atelier opens up various perspectives. It gives visitors the opportunity to witness materials being used, individual production tasks, as well as the longevity and sustainability of the design, which remains as cutting edge today as it ever was.If at the VitraHaus you decide to purchase an Eames Lounge Chair and to have it made in the Lounge Chair Atelier, the chair will be given a special label that shows that it was made there. Later, it will be delivered to your door.Contact information & opening hours:+49 (0)7621 702 firstname.lastname@example.orgTue-Sat: 10am-6pm24 December 10am-2pmSun & Mon: no production
