Explore design excellence with Vitra
Welcome to the world of Vitra, a brand that has redefined high-quality furniture since its foundation in 1950 in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Initially a family-owned company founded by Willi Fehlbaum, the owner of a furniture store in Basel, Vitra has thrived through a journey marked by innovation, revolutionary design, and a commitment to sustainability.
The pulsating heart of this creative adventure is the Vitra Campus, located in Weil am Rhein near Basel. An extraordinary place where internationally renowned architecture merges with exceptional design. From the iconic Vitra Design Museum, housing a precious collection of furniture and hosting art and design exhibitions, to the contemporary VitraHaus, our flagship store, each building is a work of art in itself.
Encouraged by the fire that devastated the facilities in 1981, Vitra underwent renewal under the guidance of prominent architects such as Nicholas Grimshaw, Alvaro Siza, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, and Tadao Ando. These creative minds have contributed to shaping a space where design and architecture harmoniously blend.
Vitra is a leader in the field of designer furniture for the home, office, public spaces, and outdoors. Its products, born from collaborations with internationally renowned designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Verner Panton, Antonio Citterio, and many others, are true symbols of modern design.
In the extensive collection, you will find icons such as the Lounge Chair, Charles and Ray Eames' Plastic Chairs, the elegant Repos and Grand Repos armchairs, the unforgettable Hang It All, and the surprising Eames Elephant. Each piece reflects Vitra's approach, a harmonious mix of old and new, classic and contemporary.
Explore the unique world of Vitra, where art, architecture, and design come together to create an unparalleled experience. Welcome to the home of design excellence.
