This is Vitra


  • Manufacturer of high-quality residential and office furniture

  • Founded 1950 in Birsfelden near Basel

  • Design classics by Ray and Charles Eames, Verner Panton and many more

Timeless and durable designer furniture

The Swiss family business with its headquarters in Birsfelden near Basel has been in existence since 1950. As one of the most important manufacturers of design furniture in the home and office sector, Vitra operates production facilities all over the world.
Vitra's claim is to create design objects that are timeless and long-lasting. In other words, they can be passed on from generation to generation without losing any of their charm or quality. To achieve this ambitious goal, the company works with internationally renowned designers. In addition, each product is characterised by the most careful selection of materials and precision craftsmanship, because this is the only way that a piece of furniture can really stand the test of time. The designs by Ray and Charles Eames and the many other design originals in the Vitra range are the best examples of this.

Collaboration with designers

Vitra always tries to break new ground. In the company philosophy, the designers are therefore referred to as authors. During the collaboration, they enjoy a lot of freedom in experimenting with forms and materials.

Vitra offers them a creative breeding ground and competent knowledge for their development. The results are innovative products that inspire today and tomorrow. This understanding of art and production processes can be felt in every piece of furniture or home accessory.

The history of Vitra

If you want to understand where Vitra's success story began, you have to travel back in time. It all began in the early 50s of the 20th century when the founder Willi Fehlbaum, on a trip to New York, happened to see a chair in a shop window, the shape of which never left him. Inspired by his discovery, the Swiss shop fitter decided to work as a furniture manufacturer from then on. He learned that Charles and Ray Eames were responsible for the chair design and got to know the US-American design couple.
What today sounds like a fateful coincidence was the ignition spark for Vitra's development into a modern furniture company. Not only did a close friendship develop between the Fehlbaums and the Eames - with the acquisition of the licences in 1957, Ray and Charles' revolutionary furniture came to Europe for the first time. An enormous success: their designs, above all the Eames Lounge Chair and the Eames Plastic Chairs, are still among the classics of modern design. At the same time, the range was expanded with iconic designs by George Nelson, Alexander Girard and Isamu Noguchi.

Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein

Since this inception, Vitra has opened its doors to the design pioneers of the world. Willi Fehlbaum's courage was once again in demand when he supported the Danish designer Verner Panton in developing a cantilever chair made of cast plastic. In 1967, the Panton Chair was released and immediately became a top seller. In the following years, Willi's son Rolf took over the management and there were many other fruitful collaborations with well-known designers, including Antonio Cittero, Alberto Meda, Maarten van Severen, Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Hella Jongerius and Konstantin Grcic.
In order to create a worthy monument to Vitra's legacy, the Vitra Campus was opened at the German location Weil am Rhein in the 1980s. Since then, many international architects and designers have immortalised themselves there. And because standing still does not suit Vitra, the product range has been continuously expanded, enlarged, cautiously developed and renewed to this date - entirely in the spirit of Willi Fehlbaum. Today, his granddaughter Nora Fehlbaum is CEO of Vitra, one of the most popular brands for designer furniture worldwide.

The VitraHaus

The concept of the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein on the Swiss-German border is unique. The site is home to many interesting buildings by prominent architects, which were gradually built there and are among the milestones of modern architectural history.
After the British architect Nicholas Grimshaw designed a factory building for the site in the early 1980s, he was originally supposed to realise other buildings. But in 1984 Rolf Fehlbaum met the deconstructivist architect Frank Gehry and the idea had to give way to a new concept: In future, many different styles were to meet on the site. Thus, contemporary snapshots of architecture, design and art were created there that are still of global significance today.
More recently, the VitraHaus designed by Herzog & de Meuron was added, which is a kind of flagship store and visitor centre with product installations, consultation rooms, café and design shop. The Swiss architecture firm is also responsible for the Vitra Schaudepot, which was completed in 2016 and houses a permanent exhibition and other collections. Carsten Höller's Vitra Rutschturm (Vitra Slide Tower) is a viewing tower with a slide that offers a great view of the Vitra Campus.
