Modular World Exhibition | Vitra Design Museum
The modular furniture of influential German designer Dieter Rams is the focus of an exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.
The Modular World exhibition is billed as the first to primarily focus on Rams’ furniture – as opposed to the electrical goods he iconically designed in his 40 years as head of product design for Braun.
Much of this furniture was produced for British furniture brand Vitsoe, which still manufactures several of the pieces, including the 606 Universal Shelving System and 621 Side Table.
Seating from his 620 Chair Programme – relaunched by Vitsoe in 2013 – is on display, alongside lesser-known designs, such as his 740 furniture system, based on Japanese sitting mats.
