Rolf Fehlbaum has built Vitra, the Swiss office furniture company founded by his father in 1950, into one of the most innovative design firms in the world, not only for its products, but for the architecture of its own buildings and its unique commitment to education. A collector of modern and contemporary architecture and design, Fehlbaum founded the Vitra Design Museum in 1989 to promote research and programs about design.
