Future Furniture: From Science Fiction to Metaverse

Vitra Schaudepot
Lloyd Schwan, Statuette, 1995
How was and is the future being imagined in design? The annual presentation at the Vitra Schaudepot is dedicated to the vision of a new world, and crosses a bridge from the furnishing in early science fiction movies to design for virtual spaces. Groundbreaking design objects from the collection of the Vitra Design Museum show how technical innovations and design utopias have found their way into our everyday lives and directly shape our everyday world.
