Institution

The Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein 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 by Frank Gehry, the museum annually mounts two major temporary exhibitions. In addition, smaller shows are presented in the Vitra Museum Gallery, which often follow a more contemporary and experimental approach. 

Often developed with renowned designers, many of the museum's exhibitions cover highly relevant contemporary themes, such as future technologies, sustainability or questions like mobility and social responsibility. Others are presenting historical topics or monographic exhibitions on iconic designers.

The exhibitions are accompanied by lectures, guided tours, workshops and educational programmes. Many of the museum’s exhibitions travel to partner museums all over the world. The work of the Vitra Design Museum is based on its unique collection of furniture, lighting and interior design.
