List of products by brand Vitra
Vitra, a family company born in 1950.
Vitra is a Swiss family-owned company. It not only makes furniture and creates retail environments, but also has its own Campus with buildings by leading international architects. It all began in 1953: Willi Fehlbaum, the founder of Vitra, discovered chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames on a trip to the USA and decided to become a furniture manufacturer. He met the designer couple in person a short time later and developed a lasting friendship that has shaped our company ever since. Vitra maintains a close relationship with its designers – whom we refer to as authors – and the result of these collaborations is always an original. Together with the manufacturer, designers dedicate their time, expertise and craftsmanship to the development and launch of new products. They conceive objects that are more than mere things – this is their special talent. Their aim is to design a product that not only looks great but also creates a unique experience for the user. Other aspects, such as sustainability and longevity, are also integral to the design process. All of these factors enhance the appearance and value of the products as they age. Originals do not simply get older – they become more beautiful.
