Vitra Design Museum Office

Vitra Campus, Weil am Rhein

The Vitra Design Museum office combines different areas of responsibility – from collection administration and the conservation workshop in the Vitra Schaudepot, to travelling exhibitions, publications, curatorial tasks and visitor tours and events. As the employees in these different areas need to interact on a daily basis, multiple departments with different workflows are accommodated in an area of 730 sqm.

The Vitra Design Museum office was designed as a ‘transparent’ workplace. Visitors to the Vitra Campus can see into the offices from the neighbouring Depot Deli restaurant and, likewise, the workshop and all meeting rooms have glass walls that dissolve the boundary between inside and outside. The office is also accessible to visitors on public tours.

Office Spaces


The curators at the Vitra Design Museum spend a large part of their work day circulating between the museum buildings and offices on the campus. They need spaces that allow them to easily navigate between their different tasks. The museum’s project managers and specialists, on the other hand, spend most of their day in the office and maintain connections with colleagues by sitting at Joyn workstations.
