Facts

  • The showroom and office interiors were treated quite differently from the robust manufacturing space.
  • Contract value 8.7m DM.
  • The factory Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners designed for Vitra in 1981 has become a well known piece of industrial design.
  • The fast-track construction used a 25m span pre-cast concrete frame combined with service towers erected independently of the main structure. This provided a clear and flexible production floor.
  • The lining panels and insulation followed the structure so that the fit-out could proceed in parallel to cladding. The cladding is made up of corrugated aluminium sheeting, rounded at the building's corners, producing a low maintenance building with clean, pleasing lines.
