'Hannes Wettstein, 1958-2008' at ETH Zurich

Take a training in structural-engineering draughtsmanship, the rational, pared-down aesthetic of the Swiss, and the talent of a natural designer and you get Hannes Wettstein, the creative whose furniture, product designs and interiors form a memorable body of work with an emphasis on simplicity of form. The material legacy of Wettstein, who died far too young in 2008, is currently being celebrated in Zurich at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), where an exhibition in its striking main hall combines the display of some of his archetype-defining products with large-scale projections of his sketches. Architonic was there, of course, and offer you some photographic impressions of the installation-like show.
