The creation of a design museum, a leader in its field

Located in Weil am Rhein in Germany, the Vitra Design Museum promises an unforgettable visit. Upon your arrival, you’ll be captivated by the unique architecture of the main building. Designed by Frank Gehry, an American architect, this spectacular building perfectly reflects the unique and quirky style of its creator.

Inside, the sobriety of the exhibition halls contrasts with the arresting architecture of the building.

The museum was born out an idea by the Swiss furniture manufacturer, Vitra, to construct this type of building, following a fire in its factories. Today the museum hosts exhibitions and shows centred around architecture, design, and furniture. An inspiring and avant-garde location for some, a place of discovery for others, the Vitra Design Museum never fails to impress.

Here you will find creations by renowned figures in architecture and design, such as:  Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Jean Prouvé or even Renzo Piano.
