vitrahaus by herzog & de meuron.

in january 2004, vitra launched its home collection, which includes design classics as well as re-editions and products by contemporary designers. as a company whose previous activity was primarily focused on office furnishings and business clients, vitra created the home collection with a new target group in mind: individual customers with an interest in design.

since no interior space was available for the presentation of the home collection on the vitra campus in weil am rhein, the company commissioned basel-based architects herzog & de meuron in 2006 to design the vitrahaus. thanks to its exposed location and striking appearance, it not only enhances the already outstanding ensemble of vitra architecture, but assumes the important role of marking the vitra Campus.
