Entertainment for the kids

It’s hard to keep little ones entertained during these times. To help, Vitra created a printable template so your children can design their very own Eames Elephant at home. Click here to download it. Don’t have a printer? Not to worry. Here’s an alternative version for you to colour in using Paint on your computer.

Visit the Vitra campus virtually

One of the ways Vitra is helping us through this stressful time is through virtual tours of the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. Home to the Vitra Design Museum and the VitraHaus, the Vitra Campus pays homage to of design, past and present. The campus acts as a magnet for fans of design and architecture from across the globe. By offering video tours, Vitra is ensuring no one misses out on design. It also gives us access to some remarkable feats of architecture and design from the comfort of our own homes.

The Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein

Premium office furniture

With meetings now taking place on Zoom, coffee breaks in your own kitchen and time spent in your home office, it’s crucial you’re properly kitted out to work from home. Get started with an ergonomically designed office chair to help protect your back. An icon like the EA 108 Chair by Charles and Ray Eames will never go out of style.

A comfortable desk chair is just the beginning. Vitra’s collection features mid-century desks, practical shelving units and accessories to make your life easier. Plus, these designs are so iconic and functional that you’ll enjoy having them in your home long after quarantine ends.

Chairs that work throughout the home

If you’re living and working in a smaller space then you may not have room for office furniture. Particularly office furniture you’re investing in and would like to keep long term. Instead, opt for furniture that can be used for multiple purposes.

For example, many Vitra chairs look great in dining spaces but also make excellent desk chairs. This way you can move the chair around your home without needing to fit an office chair into your décor. Some of our favourite versatile chairs include the Tip Ton Chair by Barber & Osgerby. This chair is specially designed to straighten the spine and improve circulation to the abdominal and back muscles.

Organise your space

If you’re spending twice as much time in your home, it’s likely you’ll be making twice as much mess. Keep your space clean and uncluttered with ingenious storage that makes your smile every time you see it.

Wall-hanging designs like the Uten.Silo take up remarkably little room. Similarly, Charles and Ray Eames’ Hang It All Coat Hook keeps your outerwear in order and looks great at the same time.
