'mwc' chair by Florian Hauswirth

The Swiss designer Florian Hauswirth has a quiet intresting biography: before he started his study at the University of Applied Arts Nordwestschweiz he worked for five years as a model builder in the development department of Vitra in Birsfelden, Switzerland, realising prototypes and design models for namable designers such as Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Alberto Meda, Antonio Citterio, Philippe Starck etc. – probably the best school to analyse and understand high-quality design. Today, he develeops his own projects and is also involved in the Swiss platform ‘Postfossil’.

‘mwc’ chair is one of his most recent drafts, a three-legged chair with a moveable backrest made from solid wood.
