The German institution the Vitra museum in Weil on Rhine, which was among the first design-only museums when it first opened its doors in 1989, is hosting a free public day on November 8.

Visitors will be able to tour the architecture exhibitions, the current display 'Antibody. Works of Fernando & Humberto Campana 1989-2009,' and the museum's own collection that is normally not open to the public.
