The Vitra Design Museum is one of the world's leading design museums. It explores and communicates the history and present of design and relates it to architecture, art and everyday culture. In 2009 I was asked to paint the wall design in the reception area. An image of the Wooden Dolls family, designed by Alexander Girard. The architect and designer is one of the defining figures of American design in the postwar period. Girard originally made them himself out of wood in 1952 for decorating his Santa Fe home. These originals are in Girard's estate at the Vitra Design Museum. 

The mural is a proud 7 meters long and 3 meters high and welcomes or bids you farewell as your tour of the Vitra Museum, built by architects Herzog and De Meuron.

Painting is not coloring shapes, but shaping colors.
