This image-heavy overview of Vitra is pure eye-candy, says Christine Murray

Project Vitra. Edited by Rolf Fehlbaum and Cornel Windlin. Birkhäuser, 2008

Retrospective publication Project Vitra primarily comprises drool-worthy photo spreads of geometrically arranged iconic chairs. There’s also a look at the architectural funhouse of Vitra Campus, the company’s corporate base in Weil am Rhein, Germany. An eclectic collage of buildings by Nicholas Grimshaw, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, lvaro Siza, Buckminster Fuller and Jean Prouvé, new works by Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA will open in 2009.
