Design Museums in Germany

  1. Vitra Design Museum

    Vitra Design Museum

    The inception of the Vitra Design Museum dates back to the early 1980s. With the aim of documenting the history of the Vitra company, Vitra CEO Rolf Fehlbaum began collecting the furniture of designers who had influenced the company's development, such as Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Alvar Aalto, and Jean Prouve. As the collection grew, so did the desire for an architectural venue in which the objects could be displayed. Today, the Vitra Design Museum is internationally active as a cultural institution that has made a major contribution to the research and popular dissemination of design.

    Designed by Hans Hollein, this museum is among the most important in Frankfurt and is known to locals as "das Tortenstuck" ("the slice of cake") due to its triangular shape. Exhibits are rotated biannually and often include works and projects by up-and-coming young artists.
