The architecture for Vitra’s logistics and production center encompasses two twin buildings. The structures distinguish themselves from the surrounding industrial buildings with their outward projecting flat roof supported by white beam scaffolding. The design of the building completed in 2009 integrates novel architectural, energetic and technical solutions that are informed by the experience and reflections on the first structure completed in 1992. The underfloor heating inside is paired with a lighting system controlled by sensors that detect incoming light and adjust illumination intensity to the necessary level.
