»An Eames Celebration«
09. October 2017
Charles and Ray Eames are counted among the most important designers of the 20th century. With their furniture, films, books, exhibitions and media installations, they have influenced generations of designers and continue to shape our everyday culture. No other name in design so clearly represents technical perfection and a timeless aesthetic, and none is more closely associated with the exuberant start-up culture on the American west coast during the post-war era, in which the Eameses played a prominent role. From 30 September 2017 to 25 February 2018, the Vitra Design Museum will present »An Eames Celebration« – four parallel exhibitions that offer an unprecedented view of the work created by the legendary designer couple.

Alexander Girard A Designer's Universe

Alexander Girard A Designer's Universe
12 March 2016 – 22 January 2017
Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein
Alexander Girard (1907 – 1993) was one of the most influential interior and textile designers of the 20th century. His playful designs attest to a passion for colours, ornamentation and international folk art, with which he shaped the aesthetic of American design in the postwar era and anticipated the globalization of design by decades. In March 2016, the Vitra Design Museum will open the first major retrospective on Alexander Girard. The exhibition presents his oeuvre with a never before shown multitude of textiles, furnishings, models, small objects, interiors, personal documents, and drawings. At the same time, it sheds light on Girard’s inspirations and the contemporaries who influenced his creative universe – from his extensive collection of folk art to his collaborations with Charles & Ray Eames and Eero Saarinen. The exhibition also features Girard’s private estate, which is held by the Vitra Design Museum. Exhibition catalogue
