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, the museum annually mounts two major temporary exhibitions.
The Vitra Schaudepot presents approximately 400 key objects from the extensive collection and hence resembles one of the largest permanent collections and research sites on modern furniture design world-wide. Every year the presentation is expanded by three to four smaller exhibitions focusing specifically on items from the collection.
The work of the Vitra Design Museum is based on its collection, which includes not only key objects of design history, but also the estates of several important design personalities.
The museum library and document archive are available to researchers upon request.City: Weil am Rhein
