The Vitra Workspace occupies 1,700 square metres on the renovated second floor of Frank Gehry’s 1989 production hall at the Vitra Campus at Weil am Rhein in Germany.

Ohrstedt and Olivares worked together to renovate the space, creating a new area dedicated to presenting the furniture brand’s office products.

“Vitra didn’t have a dedicated office furniture showroom [on the campus] before this,” said Ohrstedt.

“They had their office furniture scattered throughout the site. They wanted to make a destination as successful as the VitraHaus is for their home furnishings, but for their office furniture market.”
