Vitra Design Museum
The Vitra Design Museum numbers among the world's leading museums of design. It is dedicated to the research and presentation of design, past and present, and examines design's relationship to architecture, art and everyday culture. In the main museum building by Frank Gehry, the museum annually mounts two major temporary exhibitions, such as »Garden Futures: Designing with Nature« (2023), »Plastic: Remaking Our World« (2022), »Here We Are! Women in Design 1900 – Today« (2021), »Home Stories: 100 Years, 20 Visionary Interiors« (2020), »Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design 1924 – Today« (2019), »Balkrishna Doshi: Architecture for the People« (2019), or »Charles & Ray Eames. The Power of Design« (2017).
The Vitra Schaudepot was designed for the Vitra Design Museum by star architects Herzog & de Meuron. One of the world’s largest permanent exhibitions of modern furniture design, the Vitra Schaudepot presents key objects from the museum’s extensive collection and provides an invaluable research source. Displays in the Vitra Schaudepot showcase a changing selection of more than four hundred key pieces of modern furniture design from the 1800s to today, including early bentwood furniture, iconic modernist pieces by Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, and Gerrit Rietveld, as well as contemporary 3D-printed furniture and lesser-known or anonymous objects, prototypes, and experimental models.
Luis Barragán (1902–1988) is widely regarded as the most important Mexican architect of the twentieth century. As part of a partnership between the Barragan Foundation and the Vitra Design Museum, the Barragán Archive is hosted in close proximity to the Vitra Schaudepot. This includes a state-of-the-art repository for the documents, a study room for visiting researchers, and the Barragán Gallery, a thematic exhibition space. The gallery show presents drawings, photographs and other material from the Barragán Archive, together with biographical details and an illustrated chronology of modern architecture in Mexico.
Another attraction on the Vitra Campus, the »Wunderkammer« presents spellbinding mise-en-scènes featuring more than one thousand action figures from the collection of Rolf Fehlbaum, Chairman Emeritus of Vitra. This includes robots, space toys, comic book characters, folk art, and advertising, often created by anonymous artists and designers. Visitors can experience the Wunderkammer exclusively as part of a public guided tour.
