Opening "Personalities"

The results of a Vitra advertising campaign which took place over a number of years can be seen in WestLicht since mid-January. The Swiss photographer Christian Coigny travelled round the world for over ten years in order to take photos of celebrities on Vitra chairs – often he was only given a few minutes to do so. Hanns-Peter Cohn, CEO of Vitra AG since the beginning of 2005 (and former head of Leica Cameras) opened the Coigny exhibition with a passionate speech. Also present were Fritz Hrusa head of the Vitra branch office in Vienna, WestLicht architect Gregor Eichinger, Mrs. Cohn, Axel Hubmann with his wife and many other “celebrities.”
