Vitra Schaudepot

The collection of the Vitra Design Museum

Designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron, the Schaudepot opened in 2016. It hosts part of the collection of the Vitra Design Museum, which with 7000 pieces of furniture, over 1000 lighting objects, and numerous archives, as well as the estates of several famous designers, ranks among the most important holdings of furniture design in the world. The permanent exhibition presents over 400 key pieces of modern furniture design from 1800 to the present.

Although the main building of the Vitra Design Museum designed by Frank Gehry, which opened in 1989, was originally conceived as a venue for the collection, it is used today for the presentation of major temporary exhibitions. Up until now, the museum collection has never been on permanent display. In this context, a second entry point will be created to the Vitra Campus, enhancing its connections to the cities of Basel and Weil am Rhein.
