Would You Live in a VitraHaus?

It’s every design enthusiast’s dream to live in a house with objects and furniture designed by iconic greats such as Charles and Ray Eames, Verner Panton, the Bouroullec Brothers, and others. Some of the lucky few could achieve it, but the second best thing is to visit the VitraHaus in Germany.

There is the Vitra Museum, but the VitraHaus serves as a flagship store and conceptual space of sorts for the famous furniture company. It recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with a facelift by starchitects Herzog & de Meuron.

Arranged like in a real (Herzog & de Meuron-designed) house, VitraHaus has “imaginary occupants” with different personalities, lending a different flavor to each room, which range from whimsical and colorful to sleek and minimalist. All pieces are by your favorite Vitra designers, of course.

While we are currently stranded in our homes, we can escape for the moment at the VitraHaus by visiting its website. All photos here are by Lorenz Cugini for Vitra.
