Lighting


The collection of lighting in the Vitra Design Museum consists of approximately 1000 objects. It includes many classics of the 20th century, such as the legendary lamp “WG24“ by Wilhelm Wagenfeld (1924) or Richard Sapper’s “Tizio“ lamp (1972), but also rare pieces, prototypes and one-offs. The lighting collection documents the combination of technological innovation with design aesthetics and demonstrates the fascination that many designers have for the psychological and philosophical aspects of light.
