I've spent a nice Sunday at the Vitra Design Museum, in Germany. A few kilometers from Basel.
I first went to the building where Vitra and other famous brands are used to create cozy environments, so that people that are looking for new ideas on how to furnish their apartments (given to have a large wallet) can get inspired. The structure of the building is really impressive (see pictures), with overlapping floors that cross each other. Amazing the view on the vineyard (see pictures).
On a different building, they have at the moment an exhibition about Charles and Ray Eames, which was good to understand that their design and activities went well beyond the furniture they created . I found interesting how similar the facade of their house looked like a bookshelf they designed. There were also short movies and documentaries Charles and Ray Eames realized.
Finally, I found really cool the "Depot", where a selection of famous design chairs is shown (see pictures); I liked to see pieces that I have been seeing only on the internet, and realize that their dimensions were different that what I imagined. The shelf with the Juhl and Wegner pieces was astonishing. But probably a bit too obvious.
The Vitra campus is quite bit; I think they have also the production site there. A nice place where to go on a Sunday, when a golden Autumn we had is giving space to Winter.
All the best
