Corniches arose from the need for small spaces for the spontaneous storage of miscellaneous objects. Whether as a key rack beside the front door, a spot to put everything we need to have at our fingertips in the bathroom, a pedestal for a small collection of objects or as a large installation, the Corniches storage ledges are a new way to use the walls in our living spaces. They are produced from high-quality plastic in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours.

“Sustainability is just like morals: one should live by them and not just talk about them. Our roots in modern design make the first step easy: we make products that avoid the superfluous and last for a very long time.”
— Rolf Fehlbaum, Chairman of Vitra
The Vitra Company is a Swiss manufacturer of designer furniture originally founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum, the owner of a furniture shop in nearby Basel, Switzerland. In the 1950s, Vitra acquired licenses for the iconic designs of Charles and Ray Eames (e.g., the Eames Lounge chair and ottoman) and George Nelson (e.g., the Nelson Ball Clock), and has since been the European retailer of the works of many internationally renowned contemporary furniture designers such as Philippe Starck, Borek Sipek, Mario Bellini, Glen Oliver Low, Verner Panton, Antonio Citterio, Frank Gehry and many more.
With a stated goal of making designer goods more accessible to the general public, Vitra's product line consists of a wide range of designer furniture and the company's own designs for use in offices, homes and public areas. Never afraid to experiment with new and bold ideas, Vitra celebrated the 50th anniversary this year of the Panton chair by Danish designer Verner Panton . Not only was this cantilevered, stacking chair Vitra’s first independently developed product, but also the very first single-form injection-molded plastic chair made from a single section, a design that other companies for many years did not believe could be built.
More than just a design-oriented manufacturing company, Vitra also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, a collection of modern furniture and archives, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza and others at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden, Switzerland and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein, Germany.
Dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century, Vitra believes the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. Product longevity is central to the company’s mission statement, and short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support.
