‘Nods’ by Atelier Oï for Atelier Pfister
Inspired by the form of human body while in comfortable, seated cross-legged position, the multidisciplinary design practice Atelier Oï has recently realised this curious collection of foldable outdoor furniture for the Swiss brand Atelier Pfister. Comprising a chair, a lounge chair as well as three, variously sized table designs, ‘Nods’ has been developed in the weather-resistant solid teak wood. (more…)
'Staccato' shelving unit by Atelier Oï for Röthlisberger
The multidisciplinary design practice Atelier Oï has recently realised this cleverly-constructed, natural solid ash shelving unit for the Swiss furniture manufacturer Röthlisberger. Composed of multiple interlocking shelfs, the rhythmic, multigrid structure of ‘Staccato’ is ideal for large format books as well as smaller volumes and decorative items while the unit itself can also function as a functional room divider which can be extended in endless combinations.
The patented guide element of 'wogg 49' developed by Wogg and Atelier Oï
Based on the principle of their cabinet system ‘wogg 49′ designed by Atelier Oï, the Swiss manufacturer Wogg developed a completely adaptable built-in wardrobe that leaves all freedom of architectural design to the planer. The wardrobe is manufactured according to the specific requirements of the architect. A tricky technology makes this possible: The wardrobe’s outer skin is made of a single notched aluminium composite board that is extremely flexible and can be wound around bottom and lid without breaking. The patented guide element with rolls was developed for the cupboard which is not firmly attached but glued on. So there are virtually no limits to the dimensions of the cupboard in all directions.
'Frisian Wouw' by Claudy Jongstra for Ruckstuhl
The Swiss carpert manufacturer Ruckstuhl presented at this year’s Salone del Mobile an Edition of remarkable new creations. Amongst them ‘Frisian Wouw’ a felt carpet designed by Claudy Jongstra. It is distinguished in particular by its irregular contours and wild, frenzied texture.
'Pompom' by Hugo Zumbühl for Ruckstuhl
“The starting point for Zumbühl’s contribution to Edition Ruckstuhl was once again a material discovery. The backing fabric for the Pompon carpet with its dense white tuft is made of chenille yarn, a particularly plush wool thread that has practically disappeared from the market. Pompoms stitched in at regular intervals animate the surface structure and provide colourful accents.”
'Pompom' by Hugo Zumbühl for Ruckstuhl
“The ‘Dessus Dessus Dessous’ carpet, which has been woven from strips of linen, can be traced back to a textile installation entitled “Plier – Entrelacer – Superposer” (Fold – Weave – Overlap) which Atelier Oï created for Designers Saturday 2008 in Langenthal at the invitation of Peter Ruckstuhl. The starting material for this work, which was nominated for the Design Preis Schweiz 2009 award, was provided by the strips of linen that are normally used for the carpet trim. The transformation from an experimental exhibition installation to a product for Edition required both the refinement of technical aspects and an upgrading of the graphic design.”

‘Les Danseuses’ (the dancers) is an installation the Swiss Atelier Oï designed for the Vitra Showroom in Zurich. Depending on the speed of the rotation, the bicoloured textile ensemble seems to dance over the newly decorated exhibition.

'Alumette' by Atelier Oï
In Milan the Swiss manufacturer Röthlisberger Collection presented a sofa and a chair in addition to the existing ‘Allumette’ table. The chair and the sofa are built according to the same principles as the table, using the statics of the traditional framework design. Here, forces and counter-forces interplay to absorb the load. Elegance and originality combine with stability. And because the wood of the Arura Vermelho tree is so hard, the designers were able to design a table which is intricate, airy and filigree.
