One of the Netherlands’ most experienced architectural practices Claus&Kaan Architects hold two establishments: Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The Amsterdam team currently resides in a nicely situated building of their own design on the coast of IJburg. Office manager Ellen Wybenga told the story of this beautiful working environment for Pantheon//.

expressieve vorm heeft de Panton Chair zich kunnen ontwikkelen tot een Design

icoon van het design van de twintigste eeuw.

Design speelt een hoofdrol bij Vitra en dat is merkbaar in alles. Zo heeft het bedrijf in de jaren tachtig een eigen museum opgericht, het Vitra Design Museum. Dit is een culturele instelling die zelfstandig functioneert en die zelf tentoonstellingen maakt over vormgeving en architectuur. De reizende tentoonstellingen gaan vanuit Weil am Rhein langs musea in de hele wereld. Bovendien beheert het Vitra Design Museum één van de allerbelangrijkste designverzamelingen. De collectie van het Vitra Design Museum is na een bescheiden begin in de jaren tachtig uitgegroeid tot een van de meest belangrijke internationale collecties op het gebied van hedendaags meubelontwerp. In 1989 omvatte de collectie

Joyn tafel van Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, te vinden in alle ontwerpateliers aan de Julianalaan

ongeveer duizend objecten; sindsdien is deze uitgebreid tot ongeveer zesduizend stukken. De bedrijfsgebouwen van he museum zijn op zichzelf ook de moeite waard, want ze zijn ontworpen door een aantal grote architecten. Frank Gehry bouwde er bijvoorbeeld een fabriekshal en het museum. Tadao Ando ontwierp een conferentiepaviljoen en van Zaha Hadid staat er een brandweerkazerne. De fabriekshallen zijn van de architecten Alvaro Siza en Nicholas Grimshaw. Bouwkunde op de Julianalaan Een groot deel van de Vitra collectie is inmiddels ook terug te vinden in de nieuwe tijdelijke huisvesting van Bouwkunde aan de Julianalaan in Delft. In afstemming met de ontwerpbureaus verantwoordelijk voor de inrichting van het gebouw, zijn de verschillende meubels van Vitra opgenomen in het interieur. Alles van ruime werkplekken met grote witte bureau's tot gezellige zithoeken met bijzondere meubels uit de collectie vind je terug in het gebouw. Algues van Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

In Nederland kan de hele Vitra collectie bekeken worden
