Vitra Design Museum

Since being founded in 1989, the Vitra Design Museum has grown to become one of the world’s most highly recognized cultural institutions for research on and the popularization of design and architecture.

A foundation funded by Vitra yet independent of it curates shows, stages workshops and releases publications on the topics of design and architecture. The shows are featured in international institutions and museums around the globe.

Vitra Design Museum is pleased to be able to offer guided architectural tours of the buildings by Gehry, Citterio, Grimshaw, Ando, Hadid and Siza on the Vitra grounds.
