Visiting Vitra

As part of our trip to Switzerland earlier this year, we visited the Vitra factory, close to Basel. It’s an incredible place, set in the country, not only supporting their manufacturing operations, but also providing a home to great architecture, and a fascinating museum / gallery of design. The pictures below show some of the aspects of the place – buildings by Herzog and de Meuron, Frank Gehry, Tadeo Ando, Zaha Hadid and more. There are a few pictures inside the gallery, which is set up rather like a commercial furniture showroom, but for me the exterior was more interesting.
