Very interesting exhibition, very interactive and the buildings themselves are quite entertaining as well. more »
Ok, I'm biased as I like design furniture and nice architecture - but for what other reason should you come here? I'm still blown away - you have to do the guided architecture tour :))) Just wonderful... more »
Lovely day out with lots to see and plenty for children to enjoy. Especially giant slide. Sadly the restaurant spoiled our day out. Food was cold and completely uncooked. we complained to the waitress... more »
The shop part of the Museum is wonderful, with lots of different rooms and design features, and walking around the compos between those beautiful architecture marvels always make me happy - don't forget to try the huge out door slide
Wonderful experience enveloped in design. Great coffee. Nice food. A great place for a weekend morning or afternoon.
Vitra Design Museum is a must see venue for any design related person. I teach furniture making at Warwickshire College, England and therefore I am biased in this review. I studied furniture design and craftsmanship at university and this should have been a field trip venue whilst we were studying. We paid for the architecture tour which was very a very informative 2 hour tour of the campus, with great snippets of information you would not necessarily gain walking round on your own and access to some parts of the site otherwise of limits. Nichole, our guide spoke perfect English and the tour flew by, my advice if it's sunny, is borrow a Vitra umbrella, that sun does bear down and we were grateful of some shade. The architecture was not the main event for us, we enjoyed looking at buildings by prominent architects but as a furniture maker, the chairs were what we were here to see. There were displays of furniture in Zara Hadid's fire station and the Vitra haus and Eames leather chair assembly was great to see, but the Schaupot (chair museum) 'blew my mind'. All my design history lessons kicked in, amazing chairs after amazing chairs are displayed in racks three high and grouped in decades. Wow, wow and wow. Downstairs there is more to see , with a cabinet of drawers to open with materials and inspiration insights and Eames's office setup as it was in California. There are also windows that allow a glimpse of the vast archive of furniture and lighting which unfortunately are not accessible to tour on a general visit. An amazing 6 hour trip for us!
Amazing buildings, great exhibitions. Food in the restaurant is just so-so. The guided tour is a must.
Spent a whole day here and didn't get enough! I loved both architectural tours I payed for, just excellent! Beautiful place where Germany, France and Switzerland come together. Recommended for architects, designers, people of art and actually everyone, because it's just fantastic!
