for Project Reference Pages

Project reference pages are the online showcase for a selection of projects that Vitra has recently implemented for customers. Besides a short introductory text, the emphasis of each page is on photographs of each project.

Project reference pages are displayed at three locations depending on the segment:

Submitting Content

To create or update a webpage on, we'll need a briefing from you. To save time and effort for everyone, please assemble as much content as possible, organize it, translate it and proofread it before submitting a briefing. Let us know where the images should be placed in the text and include the Censhare Asset ID for each image in the briefing. Any supporting information such as credits, addresses and times should be included in the text of the briefing. For each article, there should be a version in each language (DE, EN, ES, FR, IT, NL), unless the article will only be shown in a smaller geographic area (local news).

First, please assemble all of the content in a folder in Censhare.

Here's how:

  • If there is a relevant asset in Censhare to which you would like to attach the folder, find the asset in Censhare.

    If you do not know of a relevant asset in Censhare, enter ID "1781933" into the search field. This will take you to the folder "Content Submissions."

  • Select and right click on the asset under which you'd like to create the new content folder: New asset > New child asset > Group, like this:

  • In the resulting pop-up you only need to enter a relevant name, like "Content - News Article XYZ", and then click OK. The new folder is created.

  • Drag and drop all images, PDFs, or text documents into this folder with the "Assignment" relation. Don't forget to enter the metadata for the images and PDFs if you haven't already done so.1

  • Select the content folder you have just created and copy the ID number from the "Info" panel at the right. If you don't see the info panel, go to Window > Show component > Info in the menu bar at the top of the Censhare window.

You're now ready to submit a briefing to us! Please include the Censhare ID number of the content folder, your name (or the name of a contact person), and the desired publication date in the briefing.
