Vitrahaus, Herzog & de Meuron (Metropolis)

Animated by architectural gems, the industrial campus of the furniture company Vitra, in Weil am Rhein, Germany, has long been a tourist attraction, but before a new addition by Herzog & de Meuron, public access had been limited to guided tours focusing on the on-site museum. Vitra uses the campus, after all, to manufacture, test, and store much of the furniture it ships across the world, and the grounds weren’t designed to handle swarms of visitors. That all began to change in 2004, when the company, formerly focused on contract products, launched the Home Collection.
