Vitra Design Museum
Designed by Frank Gehry, the Vitra Design Museum has become one of the world's leading design museums since its opening in 1989.

The Vitra Design Museum is dedicated to the research and presentation of design, past and present, and examines its relationship to architecture, art and everyday culture. Every year, the Vitra Design Museum organises up to ten exhibitions on a wide range of topics about design and architecture, which are shown in the main building by Frank Gehry, in the Schaudepot by Herzog & de Meuron and in other locations on the Vitra Campus. Many of the museum's exhibitions are also taken on tour and presented in partner museums around the globe. The cornerstone of the Vitra Design Museum's work is its unique collection of furniture, lighting and interior design.
