The Carsten Höller slide tower, charming fuel station by Jean Prouvé and more: The architectural quality of all buildings on the Vitra Campus is fascinating. And, faithful to the philosophy of this establishment, it’s not only form that matters instead content and capacity. The Vitra Design Museum is in fact one of the most important exhibition centers for industrial furniture design.
The world elite in terms of architecture had a hand in building the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein - from Frank Gehry to Tadao Ando and Herzog & de Meuron. And it’s only the spectacular inner content that has one up on the building. This establishment is considered one of the world's leading museums for industrial furniture design and lighting - the publications of which create a loud echo near and far.
Besides the many beautiful things, the museum offers changing exhibitions, guided tours and workshops. And those who fall in love with one of the objects there and then can purchase it from an own shop. Ever since 2014, and the inauguration of the 30.7 meter-high Vitra sliding tower by Carsten Höller, you also get to see the transparent and fast way that good architecture is not only nice to look at, but can also be fun.
