At Vitra we believe that thoughts and feelings are shaped by our surroundings – whether at home, at work or on the go. That is why we strive daily to improve interiors through the power of good design.

Vitra founder Willi Fehlbaum first came across creations by Ray and Charles Eames in the early 1950s. This decisive moment marked Vitra’s beginnings as a design company. Vitra has collaborated with international designers and architects ever since.

While the first generation laid the company’s commercial foundations, and the second added a cultural dimension through the development of the Vitra Campus and the Vitra Design Museum with its collection, the third generation puts the spotlight on sustainable thinking and action.
