About this product
- DescriptionAlfred Altherr Junior made his mark in the area of modern Swiss architecture as a designer, architect, museum director, lecturer and exhibition designer. Joan Billing and Samuel Eberli from Design+Design reviewed and researched the creative legacy of this protagonist of Modernism, giving rise to a wonderfully invative collection that puts Altherr and his work deservedly back into the spotlight. In his early years, Altherr created his first design, a steel-tube lounger at the company Embru in Ruti. He gained relevant experience during his internship with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in Paris. Altherr played an important role as an advocate of Swiss lifestyle culture and he was a co-founder of the award Die Gute Form, becoming founder of the first furnishing design advice center in Winterthur, Switzerland. His aim was to promote new and contemporary designs for living, t only to the younger generation but to everyone! This publication shows that design culture is able to bring together elements of both past and present. With texts by Alfred Altherr, Arthur Ruegg, Michael Hanak, Susanna Koeberle, Peter Lepel, Claude Lichtenstein and Juho Nyberg. Authors:Alfred Altherr, Arthur Ruegg, Michael Hanak, Susanna Koeberle, Peter Lepel, Claude Lichtenstein and Juho Nyberg.
