Earlier last month (18.05 – 11.06) the internationally-acclaimed Swiss designer Robert Wettstein has presented ‘Möbliert’, the first solo exhibition of his designs to be held in his hometown of Zürich.

 

For those of you who didn’t make it to the show, which was on view at the Galerie am Hirschengraben, Architonic brings you the photographs from this surprising and undeniably inspiring exhibition which explored the idea of a ready-furnished room.

With his newest conceptual work the Swiss designer Robert Wettstein seems to comment the influence of corporate identity and branding of todays furniture industry. During this year’s Milan Design Week he will present this high table / bench made from the packaging of a renowned British furniture manufacturer. The exhibition will be set up at La Fabbrica del Vapore via G. C. Procaccini 4

Here is what Robert Wettstein explains:

“The piece is made from a transportation box which once contained a valuable piece of design. After carrying the product well-protected to the client the box fulfilled its requirements and is not needed anymore. Usually! I give it a new function. Refined by a transparent coating applied by a specialist the box turns into a useful piece of furniture. The irony lies in the playful handling of branding and editions since every box is signed by me.”
