Rolf Fehlbaum, chairman of the family company Vitra, describes the aim of this book in the following way: “We talk about this as a project, because for all those involved it is much more important than simply business. …The Vitra Design Museum with its collections, archives and miniatures is just as much part of the project as the classics of the twentieth century and the interior collages which we have developed in recent years. …we also simultaneously move forwards and backwards in time. We preserve the heritage of our classics in new editions, exhibitions and publications, but we are also actively involved in contemporary design. And we are no less interested in ergonomics, ecology, logistics and quality assurance than we are in the anthropology of everyday living.”
