The collection of the Vitra Design Museum ranks among the most important holdings of furniture design worldwide. It contains some 7000 pieces of furniture, a vast assemblage of lighting objects and numerous archives, as well as the estates of such designers as Charles & Ray Eames, Verner Panton and Alexander Girard. On 4 June 2016 the Vitra Schaudepot was opened, created by the architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, in which the Vitra Design Museum presents key pieces of its collection.

With the Panton Chair, the first single unit cantilevered chair made of moulded plastic, Verner Panton succeeded in creating one of the most famous chair designs of the century. His „Fantasy Landscape Room“ at the „Visiona 2“ exhibition became an emblem of the Sixties which is included in virtually every study on the design of that wild decade. However, it would be erroneous to regard the Danish designer Verner Panton (1926 - 1998) merely as a great master of Sixties design. Although extravagant forms and the use of strong, intense colours typify his work, it is undeniably grounded in the elegant functionalism in the Fifties. And in spite of the creativity and love of experimentation revealed in his œvre, he retained a systematic approach to design throughout his life. His interest was not limited to single objects, but extended to the development of groups of furnishings and the design of entire spaces. Verner Panton‘s unusually extensive and diverse work, which was the subject of a comprehensive retrospective by the Vitra Design Museum Berlin, was rightly regarded as a major contribution to the development of design in the second half of the 20th century. In preparation for this retrospective, the Vitra Design Museum drew on its superb collection of Panton objects, as well as the entire Panton archives, which thanks to many years of personal contact with the designer has been preserved and received scholarly evaluation in Weil am Rhein. Along with countless sketches and drawings for furniture, lighting elements and other objects, among them the legendary landscaped interiors, the museum archives includes documents related to Panton`s architectural work, which until then had remained unexplored. In addition, this exhibition provided the opportunity to systematically organise and analyse his textile designs, which occupied a central position in his œvre.Exhibition tour17.10.2009 - 27.12.2009, Opera City Art Gallery, Tokyo, Japan14.05.2009 - 12.07.2009, National Museum of Singapore, Singapore08.12.2007 - 02.03.2008, Seoul Art Centre, Hangaram Design Museum, Seoul, Korea16.11.2006 - 14.01.2007, TADA Taiwan Art Design and Architecture Center, Taichung, China01.06.2005 - 01.10.2005, AXA Gallery, New York, USA26.04.2004 - 10.10.2004, Saline Royale, Arc et Senans, France20.06.2003 - 26.10.2003, DDC Dansk Design Center, Copenhagen, Danmark22.08.2002 - 13.10.2002, Sala Rekalde, Bilbao, Spain27.04.2002 - 31.07.2002, NRW Forum, Düsseldorf, Germany22.01.2002 - 20.04.2002, Fundación Pedro Barrié de la Maza, Conde de Fenosa, La Coruna, Spain19.09.2001 - 10.02.2002, Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisbon, Portugal04.04.2001 - 10.09.2001, Schloß Schönbrunn Wien, Vienna, Austria04.11.2000 - 07.01.2001, Grassimuseum, Leipzig, Germany30.06.2000 - 15.10.2000, Vitra Design Museum, Berlin, Germany05.02.2000 - 12.06.2000, Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany
