Live from Basel: here are some snaps from the Vitra Edition 2007 show in the Buckminster Fuller Dome at the Vitra campus at Weil am Rhein close to Basel.
Subtitled Experimental Installations and Objects, the show presents "radical ideas, innovative forms and technical experiments" commissioned from several leading designers.
Now in its 20th year, Vitra Edition presents limited editions of experimental prototypes that later may become the templates for production pieces.
