About the Colour & Material Library

The Vitra Colour & Material Library comprises a variety of textiles and leathers, but also features solid materials, including the colours and textures of plastics, metals, woods and other materials.

Together, the different materials offer an almost infinite number of possible combinations. The coherence of the system makes it easy for architects, interior designers and end consumers to create a lively interior collage with a strong identity.
'The Vitra Colour & Material Library encourages creative freedom and fires the imagination – not by making everything possible, but by providing a clear display of options.'
