Swiss furniture company Vitra has become one of the many important companies that are responsible for their contributions to modern design furniture and it has manufactured works by a number of important designers like Jean Prouvé, George Nelson, and of course, Charles and Ray Eames.
Vitra’s campus is well-known for its architecture and it will soon be joined by the 17,200-square-foot Schaudepot, a museum set to open on June 3rd designed by the award-winning Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. The museum will function as a showcase of more than 350 pieces from the Vitra Design Museum's impressive furniture collection and will allow visitors a closer look at museum operations.
The Schaudepot is heavily inspired by looks of industrial warehouses and consists of a windowless and simple brick design intended to place the focus on what is one of the most comprehensive collections of modern design furniture in the world. Vitra has amassed a large and varied assortment of notable works including pieces by aforementioned Charles and Ray Eames, Alvar Aalto, Alexander Girard, and many more. Many of these works have never been seen by the public.
Besides the main exhibition, the Schaudepot will also be featuring temporary exhibits throughout the year.
