The Vitra Design Museum collections evolved from modest beginnings in the 1980s to become one of the world’s most important collections of modern furniture and Vitra is continually expanding its range of products and concepts for the workplace as well as public and private spaces.

The book offers an inside look at the firms collaboration with architects and designers, including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Alexander Girard, Tibor Kalman, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, SANAA, Jasper Morrison, Zaha Hadid, Hella Jongerius, Maarten Van Severen, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Jean Prouvé, Mario Bellini, Antonio Citterio, Alberto Meda, Verner Panton, Herzog and de Meuron, and many others.

Featuring extensive unpublished material from the Vitra archives that tells the stories behind the furniture icons, and demonstrates the firm’s successful balancing act between cultural ambitions and commercial success, it is without doubt one of the most interesting, informative, and fun books for anyone interested in architecture and design.
