Vitra Schaudepot

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.
