Psssttt…we’ll tell you a best kept secret for most, but a visit to the Vitra Flagstore in Weil am Rhein (DE) will give you hours and hours of free and FUN design.

All things you would expect from a Flag Ship Store you’ll find at Vitra. Loads and Loads of well known designs and many fun new contemporary designers. You can touch, feel and test all items and offcours if you like something, just put it on the chip card you got at the entrance and easy peasy collect and buy…well…at least for some of us.

Weil am Rhein - VitraIt is all too good to be true, I had to pinch myself a couple of times and found out I was really in heaven!

For all others it is a big design museum, but with all extra’s you get in a shop. Some good food and drinks in the Vitra restaurant or a lovely ice cream outside on the green grass did wonders for me too. And even if the designs are not you’re taste at all, you will be amazed by the Architecture of all the buildings on site. Vitra hired well known architects to design not only the Flag Ship Store, but all other buildings on their production site as well. Alvaro Siza, Frank Ghery, Herzog and De Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando just to name a few, all left a mark on the Vitra Campus. Architect Tours are available. And if you are really really lucky, you will find a related exhibit in the Vitra Museum as well.
